Question Hub Centric Rings - Help?

So I just received my BBS LM Rep wheels today (havent unwrapped them yet) and I was speaking to one of my boys who asked if they came with hub centric rings... And that I might need these to properly mount my wheels..
Anyone know if I will need these to mount the EX-M1 wheels?
Through all my researching on these wheels no one has ever mentioned anything about needing rings and I would have thought if i needed them the retailer (a sponsor on the board) would have mentioned it.

Excuse my ignorance, coming from non euro cars im used to just taking the lug nuts off, mounting the new wheels and putting the lug nuts back on... Never had to deal with the entire bolt coming out.

You need the rings if the center bore on the wheels is larger than oem, I don't remember the sizes off hand though, a quick search should bring them up. However the wheels usually come with them if you need them. You'll be able to tell when you put the wheel on the hub, if there is any play you will need them.

Thanks, spoke with the retailer and he said i wont need them... The center bore of the wheel was created to match the hub.

What offset/tire brand/tire size/rim size? I thought mine were rubbing on bumps but they just barely clear, they only rub the fender lining.

Damn 10.5 can't wait to see some pics, I don't think you should rub though because of the 40 offset.
