Question Hub centric to the Elise means a bore of what?

Just to make sure I have the correct info...

To be hub centric to the Elise, it sounds like the bore would need to be 56.7mm for both the fronts and rears? Is that correct?

...and I'm thinking about getting these.

Rota Slipstreams (for track)
Fronts - 15x7 4x100 +28mm (12.5lbs)
Rears 16x8 4x100 +34mm (14lbs)

Rota Slipstream (for street)
Fronts - 16x6.5 4x100 +26mm (13.5lbs)
Rears 17x7.5 4x100 +32mm (17lbs)

Does all of this info sound correct?

I want to make sure I have the correct info before I order a set, as the last thing I want to do is mount tires on wheels and realize the size is a little off.

Thanks

Can anyone with Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 wheels confirm what size hub rings they purchased? My wheels I ordered didn't come with any, and noticing a lot of steering wheel vibration at speed.

I have the 16's on the front and 17's on the back, sitting on Proxe R1R's of 205/45ZR-16 and 235-40ZR-17.

Dealership is currently checking out balancing them among many other troubleshooting steps, but I recall no hub rings were sent with them, and dealer confirmed there were no hub rings on it when they checked.

Trying to figure out what size hub rings I need, if any.

You don't need hub rings, they are not the cure for your vibration. I could try to argue why but someone will come in here and say some BS. Look elsewhere first.

Hub rings are only used when the bore of the wheel is bigger than the hub size on the car. I would assume the Team Dynamics wheels have the correct hub bore of 56.6mm.

Get the wheel/tire assembly "road-force" balanced.

No rings needed. I used to have a set. You can get the same wheels from Fred and Alex at BlackWatch Racing for half the price of the site you linked to.

Okay okay okay everyone. Had the front left tire rebalanced and re-seated, and a 15g weight added to it. Dealership fixed it 90% which is a hell of a lot more tolerable.

Probably the New England potholes around here, but it's all good now. Dave from SeriouslyLotus also confirmed the wheels are hubcentric.
