Need help w/ rims

Recommended Posts

first off, i know this should be in wheels/rims, so no one flame me but i need the answer today and wanna get input.:icon_neut


i have 18"X 7.5" ADR Sokudo10's offset 48 and got Michelin Pilot A/S put on them yesterday at Costco. when they mount the rims on they said it was wobbly and i need spacers. i gave them the tuner-type lugs for the rims. so they put the stockers back on and i went home. today i tried putting one on myself just to see and it seems to fit fine. does anyone think maybe they just didn't do it right. any reason i should need spacers?

I am not familiar with the ADR wheels that you have, but wheels that fit the Subaru hubs are what is referred to as "Hub-Centric" and often use pressed in centering rings to accomplish this. Perhaps the ADR whels came with the wrong size centering rings, which is preventing the wheels from fitting properly. You do not want to be using wheel spacers, as the increased offset will cause premature wheel bearing failure.
