Hub Centric Ring Question

I'm going to be mounting a set of RX8 wheels on my SVX. I got the proper measurements, and purchased a set of hub rings to adapt them to fit the SVX properly. Here is my question:

The hub rings stick up over the surface of the wheel which would be sitting flush with the brake. (They have a tapered end.) It's probably about 1/32nd of an inch. Am I missing something here, or should I be grinding this additional space off of the hub rings?

No need to grind them. Just slide them on so the bigger side is facing the rotor. It works for me.

Re: Hub Centric Ring Question

The hub centric rings I purchased fit flush with the wheels I bought. I have some others for another set of wheels for our Baja and they fit flush as well. I don't think there should be anything above the mounting surface of the wheel. I'll try and take some pics.

Re: Hub Centric Ring Question

Yes, the outer diameter depends on the rim you choose, as there are many different wheel center bores.

Re: Hub Centric Ring Question

well i found the bore of my rims to be 60 mm and eBay doesn't sell them that size and i don't want crappy plastic or aluminum ones that id have to get shipped from America or china or damn it y cant there be rim shops nearby that have them without having to do the same and order them from god knows where . So my dad is going to make some for me out of perfect size aluminum tube he has laying around
