Aligning non hubcentric wheels

Just wondering if there is any aftermarket spacers or something that will allow a non hubcentric rim to align properly on an e30? or would something have to be custom machined?

Tirerack sells these. They're basically rings of aluminum; this only allows you to fit the rim onto a smaller hub.

I couldn't find them on the website, but I will send an email and ask, but do the adaptors need to be specifically fitted to the rims? or are they generic? Thanks for your help.

It's called a centering ring... it goes on the car's hub and makes up the difference for a larger centerbore on the rim.

Actually its called a HUBcentric ring. Well atleast thats what American Racing calls them.


And they do need to made for the rim, it needs to fit the center bore perfectly or it wont be hubcentric. The whole point is to make up the difference between the bigger center bore of the wheel, and the size of the hub.
