I have a set of 4, brand new, from my old TSW wheels if you want them

72.1mm is for the front wheels ? 57.1mm is for the rear ? For the rings, I need them as soon as possible since I travel a lot and I hate that vibration

Thanks for the fast reply

I'm such a noob, first time I get rims. Now I understand, the inner diameter is the center bore, the outside diameter is the wheel.

I tried to find 72.1 to 57.1mm, there is nothing. I looked on 1010tires, they say it's 72mm for the TSW Amaroo 5x112x8.5 offset 43, so I made searchs with 72 to 57.1 and I found a few centric ring, today once I woke up, I will go to my dealer and ask them if they have centric rings of this size in stock, if they don't, I will order this from amazon: https://www.amazon.ca/Gorilla-Automo.../dp/B00280CTYA

Yeah TSW has a slightly different bore than most other manufacturers, and the rings I have are directly from TSW

Glad you got it sorted out though
