    BBS wheels and hubcentric rings

    I've heard some good and some bad. So what's the real deal? Are hubcentric rings going to be a vibration nightmare on this car?

    :)

    I've seen metal ones and some type of plastic (m

    rings. I would have to take an educated guess that the metal ones would not be a problem.
    Did you get anywhere with your cruise control and getting the car recoded so it would work reliably with the M5 diff?
    I didn't.

    No, LOL .... I was going to ask you the same

    My car has been on jack stands for 3 months with wheel issues. OMG it is such a long story ... starting with a hole in one of the rims (that's right ... IN the rim).

    I also just got an Alpine PDX5 amp so I'm finally going to get rid of the DSP. I imagine I'll have it torn apart doing that for a while. But once all is staight, I'm going to go get recoded!!

    Schnitzers have plastic snap-ins, no prob to 150

    I wouldn't trust a hubcentric ring that wasn't integral with the wheel, though. If it is a ring that doesn't snap into the wheel bore I would be hesitant. The Schnitzer rings have large tabs that snap into an undercut in the bore. They're only 10mm thick but that must be enough to center the flange and let the bolts do the rest.
