So i bought my wheels from some bosnian guy a while back. I havent really noticed any markings on the wheels

Anyways, the dude told me that they were exact replicas of BBS LM's and the company got shut down for making molded copies of their wheels
I need hubcentric rings. My ride is vibrating around 60 mph. I just did a little work on my suspension including an alignment

I believe that most aftermarket wheel are 73.1mm. But don't hold me to that

Or they are BB5's, a company that got sued for making a replica that was "too close" to LM's...

And what do you mean most aftermarket wheels are made to a 73.1 centerbore? Most often wheels are made to certain company fitments. Like, Audi fitment for the most part is 5x112, et 35, 57.1 centerbore. So, if those are Audi fitment, they should be 57.1. If not, you need to find out what centerbore they are, something that is impossible to find out without knowing the company that made the wheels.

yeah JEmm, thats exactly what the guy told me.
do yout hink I should get rings that are the same centerbore as LM's?
I do have a tool I can grab from my drafting class thats a digital read out of width and everything all the way down to a thousandth of an inch or something wild.

I could get the measurement that way.

Well if they're the same as LM's I believe the centerbore would be 57.1 so they would fit no problem. If the bore is right you don't need the hubcentric rings so figure it out before you go out and buy anything just to find out you either don't need them or got the wrong size...

oh shit. haha I appreciate that.
Did you have LM's at one point or do you just know that small fact?

What do you mean? haha I just know that there is no specific hub size that "most aftermarket wheels come with."

They could be replicas, just measure it and save yourself the possible headache.
