For $5 I would put them on just to avoid any possible problems down the road.

just curious what problems could be caused from that. ive been running non hub centric wheels for nearly 10 years with no issues ever. come to think of it, i dont think my stock wheels were even hub centric.

well from what i have seen, if the bolt pattern is drilled off-center, when you tighten the lug nuts down the lug nuts will pull the wheel where ever they want, reguardless of the ring or not...and you cant run a hub centric ring with a push thru center cap BTW

What he said ^^

Also is for what ever reason your lugs start to come loose, you will feel it shake for a while before too much damage is done. The hub ring will help prevent the rim from moving too much.

As for not being able to install rings with a push through center cap......its been done before....by me.
