So I bought Black Rhino wheels for my 2011 Honda Cr-v and the hub is 12mm offset and they said that the rims are now lug centric and that I dont need to use hub centric spacers. They had also said that should the vehicle shake that they would send me the hub spacers. Has any body else had issues concerning this?

Get the centering rings, don't mess around.

Hondas are hub-centric.

FWIW, I mounted new wheels about a month ago. They also are lug centric, like yours, no hub rings. I've run 'em up to 75 mph so far and smooth as silk. If they'll send you the rings for free, why not.

Hub centric rings, not to be confused with hub centric spacers, are typically made of plastic or metal, and are designed and used to fill the gap between the hub pilot of the vehicle and the center bore of the wheel.

A hub centric ring’s sole purpose is to help align and center the wheel and tire assembly on the vehicle’s hub pilot. Once the wheel assembly is torqued, the hub centric ring’s job is complete. Hub rings help reduce and can eliminate wheel and tire vibrations caused during installation.

For more on hub centric rings check out THIS WRITE UP.

Which Black Rhino wheel did you install @PebbleCrawler 31 - Warlord? I'm happy to see if there is an applicable ring available.

Thank you for your business, crv383!

If there is an applicable hub centric for the application, yes, they would be included.

Shoot us a PM with the name and telephone number on the invoice and we'll see if that's the case with your set-up (y)

Thank you again for your support!

Yes,that is why I need the rings. I dont want to damage the lug rods or the rims. I am increasing the OEM alloys from 17 to 18's and I went with the Warlords in matte black and machined metal. Cant wait to install and Ill show you all soon.

Do you know what lug nut "seat" your new wheels require? What size tires will you run? That increased rim width and decreased offset will really move your tires out. Bet it looks cool.(y)

There supposed to attach almost factory, but with the aftermarket wheels being universal its uncomfortable seeing the hub having a gap and believing the garage that sold me them saying that most aftermarket wheels are lug centric not hub centric. They should have just shipped them with the rings needed since they come with the wheels at no cost. I'm hoping it gets more of a rugged look for off roading. The only thing is going with the 18's the size of tire is more highway 245/55R18 where currently my 17's have Firestone Destination A/T running at 235/55R17 These currently have a more rugged look.

Yes I installed the rings, they arrived on thursday afternoon and friday I cleaned the rotors, brakes, wheels and used automotive silicone to waterproof all the parts that make contact with the hub, rotor and rim. I didint want to risk using the wheels without the rings so all i can tell is the car drives as if the original set were on.
