    Hello.,
    Have a 2012 s4 stock suspension
    Just picked up some Rotiform kps 19x10 et 35
    They came with hub rings.

    So I noticed or maybe Iím being paranoid. A slight sound at low speeds., and or coming to a stop. Tires were roadforce mount and balanced(188.00) so that shouldnít be the issue.

    Should I trie to add the rings? Or maybe itís just how the new wheels are ?

    I have coils arriving in a few weeks IMG_1725.JPG

    A review is found on most new tires. Yet, that treadwear review is a near instrument, and it doesn't tell in miles to what extent anybody tire may last. Further, makers utilize distinctive techniques in making treadwear mileage claims, which thus makes contrasting tire mileages crosswise over tire brands testing.

    I would add the rings if they fit.

    Wheel companies will make a wheel with a small amount of center bore sizes so that it can be used on many vehicles. The hub centric rings are needed to match your hub bore. This is what centers the wheel on the hub. I don't know if it will be whats causing the sound, but I would add them. Without them its very hard to center the wheel on the bore which leads to vibrations.
