Default hub centric rings needed?

Just curious if I need to run a set of hub centric rings on a 02 wrx with rotas. I wasn't paying close attention when i mounted my wheels to check how they mated up to the hubs.

If so what mm conversion size do I need?

Which Rota's? Many of them are hub centric. I think it is 56.1 or something??

You could just measure the hub center. If it's close to 56.1, then it's probably hubcentric. Unless your last name is Wonder, you shouldn't have a problem discerning a 20mm gap.


Typically, aftermarket rims will run a larger hub center (ie 73mm) just so they can fit a variety of cars with a variety of hub bores.
