Hubcentric Ring size.

Hey guys.....I was just wondering what size the thunderbird hub is so that i can order some hubcentric rings. Thanks!

p.s. I found these on ebay.....says the thunderbird is 63.9. Will they work?

you're a soft toothed retard if you use these plastic errr I mean "poly carbonate" rings. Get some made out of T6 aluminum.

Ok, so after some searching it looks like our birds are indeed 63.90mm

Does anyone know of a source to get some hubcentric rims that aren't plastic (63.9 -> 73.1 mm) ? If not i'm going to have to go w/ the plastic / polycarbon one's for now 'cause they're only $15 shipped and i'm not sure where to get some custom made cheap.

those will fit.. i already checked into it, but you need to make sure they fit in the center bore of your wheels...

polycarbonate isn't supposed to break.. but.. they do...

billa there is no need to be harsh.

Open the yellow pages to machine shops. I bet they could crank out a set for under $50. You want a hard metal, but softer than the wheels and hub.

Just make sure your wheels are 73mm. You had better measure the inside of the wheel. Most Dante replica wheels for instance are 70.8mm I believe because that is what Mustangs use.
