The inner looks like it would be close enough (.04mm). You just need to make sure the outer is the size of the opening in the back of your wheel.

that's awsome derrick, i think it's great that iforged offers hub centric fitment. it makes a lot of sense when they basically custom make every set of wheels

though this thread has to go to the tires forum. there are more exposure there anyway

It is not a problem, honestly I have to thank you for asking the question. As I previously stated, the issue had yet to come up (even during the GB), so I never even asked previously!

FYI, I did not receive a email from you.

Outer is 73.1mm on the ring, the outer bore on my wheels is 72.62mm.

The only REAL use of the hubcentric ring is to accomodate for people-and mostly shops- that rush their wheel installs, and don't take the proper torquing procedures of bolting down the lug nuts in a cross pattern, and in steps. When you just tighten the lug nuts one at a time, in a non-cross pattern, you essentially tighten the wheels on unevenly, and the wheels end up going on a little off-center. Hubcentric rings prevent this from happening by centering the wheels before you even tighten the lug nuts... but they are not really necessary. People have been having no problems for decades before the advent of the hubentric rings... and usually, when you're running an expensive aftermarket wheel, you already should be torquing down the wheels correctly anyway. So whether you run with or w/o rings, just make sure you torque your lug nuts in a cross pattern, and in several steps before the final torque down (doing this assures the conical section of the lug nuts do the job of centering the wheel), and you will be safe. Oh yah, and you will also want to torque the wheels in the air. Once you let it sit on the ground and place weight on the wheels, they will shift slightly...

If/when I get wheels, I don't think I'll fork out the extra $190. I mean, if I ever want to sell them a few years (or months for some CL member) later, wouldn't I have a harder time selling them? What if an interested buyer has a car that needs a LARGER center bore?

Definitely... if hubcentricity is truly a concern for you.. get the wheels' hub centers bored to the industry standard 73.1mm size, and then just get a hubcentric ring to adapt them to your car. That way, if you do decide to sell the wheels down the road, they can still be used on other vehicles beyond the lexus...

that could most likely have been the result of imbalance in the wheel...

Only 1 set since this thread, the extra build time and cost have outweighed the need I guess.
