Default SC's are hub-centric?

Search results say yes... but I'm unclear as to whether or not hub centric rings are unique to each model wheel or if they can be purchased universally at a wheel shop.

I have a set of blitz type 01cx rims and will be putting them on my SC3 along with supra TT brakes.

Therefore I want to be sure about the hub rings before i put the the rims on.

Anything bad happen if i run without the hub rings? ..... besides vibration at higher speeds?

vibrations will also drive your wheel studs nuts.
Its not fun having all your wheel studs shear off on the freeway and having a wheel disappear into infinity.
if you want pics of the custom steering knuckle grind that followed, let me know =D
