Question piston rings...end gap?

I'm about to install a set of OEM standard size rings on a new piston.
The rings are the type that have an overlaping gap. Do I need to be concerned with actually measuring and possibly gapping these?. thanks, MW, Tucson

Take your finger and dip in oil

Lube up the cylinder.

Take piston ring #2 and insert into cylinder and use piston in opposite direction push in about 1.5"

Use feeler guage to measure gap.

Compare to OEM spec.
