I called them yesterday to inquire about some rims and tires for my xB. If you want any "name brand" tire it drives up the package price significantly. But most importantly, they do not include hubcentric rings!!!!
You get a package with wheels, tires, lugs, and on some vehicles springs but no hubcentric rings. Buyer beware!!!! Marc

yeah i was going to buy from there but i printed it out and took it to discount tire and they gave me better wheels and better tired for a better price. i also got a warranty on my tired so even if i get my tires blown they will replace for free. oh yeah and free rotation.

very few tire places will include hubcentric rings. Not im my experience anyways. They wouldnt throw them in for free to earn your business? Im sure they cost them all of 5 dolars.

what is a hubcentric ring?

on the contrary, i must chime in here...i ordered our gloss black 18 inch axis seven mods there (the ONLY place to get them..says so on the axis site) ..had a very pleasant experience...ordered them friday, the guy tried to add 100 bux for mount balance and lugs, and that did NOT ring up online when i paid, also they forgot to get my 3 digit # off the back of the credit card...so i said, fine cancel my order, i dont want to pay the extra 100 bux, and the did NOT charge me, AND they sent the lugs too! for free...got the rims in 3 days (im in jax fl) and the guy eneven called me back w the tracking # as i requested...i was pretty impressed.....overall , my seven mods came WITH the center caps (is that what the hub centric rings are??) , at no add charge, and to top it off, got the axis rims , 400 bux cheaper than the silver ones were selling for on wheelguyz.com...overall i was pleased w the packaging, the swft shipping (yes i said swift) and the service....

What is a hubcentric ring?

Hubcentric rings are rings that go on the inside of a wheel so that if the "hole" on the wheel is bigger than the hub that is attached to your brakes they will fit tighter and prevent steering wheel vibration. There was a thread about them and it will explain better than i can

i had a good experience with wheelsnext, but, every deal is different. fortunately, the model i got didn't need hubcentric rings, so i didn't have that problem. shipping was fast and i got exactly what i was looking for, for $600 including tires i don't think i can complain.
i tried to take the pricing to discount tire here in chicago and get them to match the price so that i could get the lifetime warranty, but they would go for it.
sorry to hear that you had a problem, i'm sure others have too. no company is perfect, but they could have at least tried to please you with the rings.

i wish i had rims.. imma visit discount tires.. i think i can do 600.00 for rims and tires.. util i get my stolen axis 7 mods claim money.. the fuji will go sit in the corner for a minute and weep... 1 minuted passed..
okay back to normal life.. carry on people..nothing happened here

That's where the damn vibration is coming from.
Okay, so I have some ep02's (I think), who would I get ahold of for some rings?

Hahhaha... see I guess I wasnt alone on the wheel vibration... I started a thread on wheel vibrations a while back.
Sorry to change the subject... but I need to rebalance my tires because I did not have hubcentrics in them...
i ordered a set of 18''adr visions last summer from wheelnext. now, the way i see it, your tellin the representative on the phone what car you have, what year ,what size rim, all this info, he should at least tell "oh your going to need hubcentric rings" but that wasnt the case when i bought them. when i got my rims i put em on and i was gettin vibration. i call them back up and spoke to the guy who sold me the rims and NOW he tells me i need the rings and he doesnt even offer to sell me any (i dont know if they sell them though) or doesnt tell me where to get em, or what size i need. by the way i believe the guy's name is Carlos.

Can someone show a picture of this hubcentric ring? I am clueless. Also Would I need them if I bought the TRD 18s? Thanks for any help guys. Also if I do need them where do I get them?
I ordered a wheel+tire package and i got it witout any problems... this was half a year ago..
last month my mom had some accident.. bot wheel damaged.. so i had to order another two wheel...

when i ordered i told them im going to pick it up.
they told me to wait until tue. and call...
ok.. so i called them on tuesday. and they told me to wait until tomorrow...
ok so i called them.. they told me thyey gonna ship it to me... GREAT...
so i waited a few days they told me they gonna get the weels back from fedex.... so i can pick it up next week.. ok.. so i called them later.. they told me : they will ship it.. and they told me the tracking number.. nexd day i called fedex. they have no tracking number like that.. ok.. so i called the guy again and he said he doesnt know where is the wheel hes gonna call fedex...
i was like.. WOW>.. thats impressive...
so i called them next day.. they got the weel.. YEAH!! how can i get there, what time they are open?
i sent me an email about it.. so my mom went to get the wheels..
shes arrives.. and the guy to my mom: Chaba sent you here?? for what? i told him we gonna ship the wheels
my mom called me.. i had to hang up because that was the "last drop in the cup " i didnt wanted to deal with them.. this is pathetic!!!

i went and orderd a set of wheels and they told me that the sizes are wrong and i have to pay a hundred dollars more, fine. ok i expected them to be a LITTLE shady with pricng....as are most places like that
next, they said they sent it out...and gave me a fedex number, i called and fedex said they never got nething.
i call them, they say wait a couple days and try again...it's a a big package. i said fine.
