Nearly impossible to find 94 to 87.1 rings....I've been searching. What do I do for center caps then? Vince's caps won't fit anymore, correct?

I don't know about center caps. I had Weld Racing wheels turned on a lathe to accept rings. Cost $50 a wheel for the lathe work and the rings installed.

jack up one wheel at a time, put something close to the outside of the tire to act as an indicator spin the wheel and note the distance. if it varies significantly then either the tire is out of round or the problem is in the lug centric rims (hub centric will always be true)
to verify rim or tire, put your indicator at the rim bead and repeat

Ordered a set of caps from chiefmachining.com. The inside of the black blank caps are to be 87.1mm to act as a hub centric ring. I’ll report my findings after installing them. I’m gonna go get a wheel balance too after I install the caps if needed.

Any update on those center caps centering the wheel on the hub?

Roger that. Thanks for replying. If this works, I'm definitely going this route.

I've had two different sets Methods on my last two trucks (Tundra and Tacoma) and they vibrated on both trucks. Never could get them balanced.

Yeah once I found out about them being lug centric. I figured thatís what was wrong. I thought my tires were out of round but nah. Itís the methods. If this doesnít help or get me close to what Iím wanting there will be a old set of double standards for sale cheap. Now why in the hell doesnít method just make hub centric rings to go with their wheels ?
