hub centric ring size for AG M359

Hello,

I got a staggered set of 18" on my car and its been vibrating on high speed like 70-85. I already tried Road Forced balancing but no help. Someone told me use Hub centric rings and see what happens. I was wondering if anyone knows the size of Hub centric rings I should get for AG M359?

Thanks in advance.

Just had this problem. No hub ring would fit with the wheels I got so they had to put some black tape around the hub and Rebalance everything and that did the trick. This has been done to other BMW's before.Contact the wheel manufacturer and see what they say. if not try what they did to mine.... Hope this helps. My vibration was around 40's-60 though.

I got my balancing from Fire stone, i dont think they will try with tape on. So you are saying they Hubcentric ring doesnt fit in AG M359?

Am not saying that,my wheels are different. You might be able to fit a hub ring with those wheels. The wheels I got are so close to OEM fitment that the rings were too big, thats why the little tape works as a hub ring. Someone with same wheels might post something.....

Your hub is 72.6mm, you need to find out what the bore size on the rim is. But the AG wheel should already be 72.6mm bore in BMW fitment. So you can't use a hub ring.

Keep in mind that the hub ring is mostly for centering the wheel during install, it is possible to install correctly without it. There may be other issues causing the vibration.

Are there any marking on the back of the wheel to indicate a more specific product number, etc.? If not, bust out a caliper gauge and do some measuring yo.

I think the installation was correct and the car wasnt vibrating before putting new wheels on so suspension is good too. It has to be something with the wheels. I Put brand new all season goodyear tires. The vibration is very light around 70 plus speed. so weird.
