EDIT: The topic title reads 'spacers' and I meant to type 'centering rings'. It's been a long day.

I picked up a set of Volks and swapped my stock tires onto them tonight while making a rookie mistake; I forgot to test-fit the wheels first. The center bore of the RE30s is ~10mm larger than that of the stock wheels. Does anyone know exactly which size centering rings are necessary to fit the wheels properly?

For what it's worth, here are some really bad photos:

I'll need to take some decent photos in the daylight, but I'm really happy with the look of bronze wheels on an orange car.

This morning I noticed a small palm-print on my camera's lens. I suspect it was my toddler's and that's what caused my photos last night to look as though they were shot through a cataract.

What are the specs of each wheel?

16x7 33mm offset

17x7.5 33mm offset or 17x8 44mm offset?

Any spacers needed?

Are you getting a vibration? If your not, then you dont need them. Your stock lug bolts are tapered which centers your wheels correctly around the hub.
