Default Hub centric rings needed

I have 05 WRX with 18x7.5 volk racing LE28N wheels. I need the hub rings for these wheels, I purchased the rings twice from ebay "discounttiredirect" and didn't fit the wheels but fits the car. They don't know whats the correct measurement or correct information for the volks. I need the rings to go on auto-x. Can someone find out for me. Thanks

Ummmm, you could measure the inside diameter of the hub opening on the wheel. Just a thought...

Actually, I know where you're coming from, because I'm in the same boat. I lost one of mine (well, actually, the tire shop that mounted a set of tires lost one of mine) and ordered a replacement from www.prestigewheel.com . I had measured one of the other hubcentric rings I still have a while back, and when I went to their website and saw rings with a 66.06mm diameter that number sounded about right. Unfortunately, this is one of those "measure twice, order once" kind of things. I got the ring and it was just a bit too big to fit the Volk hub opening. So I went and measured one of the other rings again and the outer diameter is actually ~64.6mm or so.

I emailed Prestige and they said they can make any size. I think I'm going to mail them one of my hubcentric rings so they can duplicate it. That way I won't be screwed if my vernier caliper measurement is a little off - it'll be their measurement that they use to make the new ring(s).

Edit: I just sent Prestige another email asking about cost for custom hubcentric rings. I'm sure the more I get, the cheaper they will be. Perhaps you and I could do this together to keep costs down for each of us?

Edit2: If anyone else out there knows where we can find "ready-made" Volk hubcentric rings, please let me know. I think it's kind of weird that, as popular as Volks are, there doesn't appear to be any in the size I need. I've checked the 8 bazillion Ebay listings and never seen the right size, and Prestige (who appears to make lots of different sizes) doesn't have them, either.

I'd suggest measuring it yourself and then go to a discount tire near you. They have a ****load of different hubrings in storage. I've been to several stores and got a couple sets for free.

I have 15x8" TE-37s. Prestige told me $10 per ring, and that it would take 2-3 weeks. No mention of a better price the more I order.

Do you have something to accurately measure your wheels (a vernier caliper, perhaps)? I think most Volks have a 73mm center bore, but mine definitely don't.

Let me find out from Gruppe-s, thats where I purchased the wheels from.
Update: I spoke to Preston and he do not have that info on hub rings. No luck, I guess I will try to measure it myself again.

I had a similar problem with my Racing Harts. I went to the Japanese website and looked up the specs on my wheel. It was 67mm bore. Does the Japanese Rays website have the specs online?
