Okay, the vendor doesn't want to sell me the Beyern's because they need hubcentric rings to fit, and they say the correct size is not manufactured anywhere. Is this the case? If you're running Beyerns, how are you doing it? Bad vibration?

Here's a quote: "These wheels hub drill is 72.56mm to fit BMW where yours is 69.5mm. Normally we solve potential vibration by placing hub rings inside of the wheels. However, there is no such size of hub rings made and therefore you will experience vibration."

Thanks for the knowledge!

Mine work (almost 2 years) as probably 100+ setups have worked. I've got 2 sets of hubrings, Tbyrne sells a set, thinner, but easy to change tires around. csijason sells a set, very high quality, removing all wheel shake, but tougher to take the tires off.

Look up CSiJason here on the boards. He makes the hubrings for the Beyern and TSW wheels. I have his TSW rings and they are TOP NOTCH pieces! I believe he was looking into having TopShelf or one of the other vendors sell them. Either way, PM him and tell him Gib sent you.

Well, neither Jason nor Top Shelf have any of these available. Any other ideas for sourcing? Unless someone has a spare or old set, looks like I'm out of luck.
