Sector111 has some, but I don't know if they're metal or not.

I sent the plastic centering rings with the wheels when he bought them. I got the centering rings from S111. Carl and I talked about it and he really wants some metal ones. The plastic ones I got were actually just a bit too tight. They wouldn't fit on the hubs of the car. If I remember my measurements correctly, they were about 0.5mm too tight. Did anybody else get ones that fit?

My CE28N wheels were delivered from Aspec Products with the plastic rings. They were too tight to fit over the hubs. I got one of them started on the hub with the help of a rubber mallet, but I never drove it home fearing it would never come off again. I called them and they quickly sent me out the proper metal rings.

Mine were too tight also, but went on with a little bit of coaxing.

I'm using the plastic rings that came with mine with no issues. I'm not using lugs however, but instead the standard bolts (actually BMW bolts).

I suspect Aspec probably has their plastic ones made with the correct dimensions now, if the ones Rich got fit on the hub correctly.

I have the TE 37s, and mine came with plastic rings (in Dec 07). They fit fine.
