I go with you on this one..aftermarket manufacturers want/need to keep production costs (and individual models catered for) to a minimum. Cheaper to add a ring than produce a wheel with correct offset. Personally, I would rather buy the correct wheel than use spacers. Just more stuff to screw up/around with!
