spigot ring help

Post by Tricky401 » Tue Aug 29, 2017 5:32 pm

sent my wheels off for refurb today and the spigot rings are not in the best condition so looking to buy some more

problem is the size and wherevdo you actually buy them? i cannot find the correct size even though there are loads of options on ebay

size of hub is 72.5mm is that correct?
rear of wheel is 78mm

i contacted oz wheels uk about 3weeks ago and then again last week and no reply

wheels are oz ultraleggera if that makes any difference

Our BMW's need 72.5 - 72.6mm.

Definitely 78.0 mm ID? That's a slightly unusual size. Thought they were usually 76.0mm, but could be very wrong.

i did think 78 seemed high and that might be the reason i'm struggling to find any. i guess it could be 76mm if my measure is out

i can't re measure now until i get my wheels back.

i have found a company which will custom make in the right sizes but it's 7days turn around

edit -just done abit more research and some places stat that oz wheels are 76mm so will ring around a few tomorrow

thanks Mp

Whilst searching for my new wheels, I came across a site which sold spigot rings if that's any help - https://www.performancealloys.com/spigo ... isID=56734

I assume the benefit of these rings is to help align the bolts when putting the wheels on and before tightening.

It's to centralise the wheel on the hub so that they run concentrically. Any more than a couple of thou' out and you can get some wicked 'clown-car' vibrations.

Thanks MP. I had them on my winter Rials but thought the tapered bolts would centralise the wheel once tightened.

No, not reliably. Very easy to clamp it down 10 thousands of an inch out, the threads aren't that clever.

76mm rings arrived, too small. Back to the search now.

Appears 78mm are not very common.

Will possibly fit the old rings back in tempory until I can get some new ones

If they are 78mm, sounds like either OZ direct, or custom made.

Can you easily measure the old rings with a vernier? Are they floppy plastic? The trick to measuring floppy plastic (and rubber O) rings is to gently 'drop' them on a cone first.

This is what happens to a spigot ring when your wheels are swapped, for ones which fit without rings, by monkeys - all squashed. :roll:

Just wondering if you ever managed to find the right size spigot rings...? I have a set of OZ Ultraleggera HLT's (18" 8J ET40) for my m235i but a couple of the spigot rings are missing/damaged so I'm looking for a new set from somewhere?

Thanks

I've done a fair bit of browsing online yesterday and today and found a few possible sellers so even if you could just remember the size you eventually got that fit correctly it would be a great help.

Cheers
