So let me get something straight. The wheels is bolted on with 5 lug nuts. There is no spacer used which affects the offset. All the hubcentric ring does is center the wheel on the hub. What are you worried about? The wheel will not fall off and as R Kieffer has shown, there was a slightly wobbliness with no ring and when he put the ring on the car drove perfectly.

If an aftermarket tuner sees fit to put a hubcentric ring on and has to meet the extremely strict TUV approval, then I have nothing to worry about. TUV is much more strict than anything that DOT Canada or the DOT USA is. Please folks, check your facts before shooting armchair opinions.
