Buddy of mine had those on his Sunfire.

Not worth it at all IMO.

I'm running 19x8.5 +42 245/35/19 19x9.5 +42 275/30/19 Enkei GTC01's. Here are a couple pics I found real quick, hope it helps your decision. They sit further out than OEM wheels. Could use spacers, but not absolutely necessary. Still looks good, and I get compliments on the wheels/car. Here are some pics for comparison.

My wheels are wider however, 8.5 and 9.5 vs 8. An 8 inch wide rim will be sunken in more, so you're more likely to need spacers than me. Spacers run around $100 for hubcentric per axle, cheaper than $2k+ rims.. then again mine were $2k anyway, I just liked them.

i purchased a set of used enkei rpf1. however they did not come with hubcentric rings. i did some searches and many said, though it is not necessary if you tighten it down in the right manner, it is recommended to run hubcentric rings. what size/brand should i get? is 66.1 x 73.1 the correct size? is that front and rear or just one? thanks

yes, you should run hubcenttric rings. you dont want teh lugs to be the primary load bearing source (lug centric, which u currently have). any place that sells them, knows what size you need for those rims, but what you listed could certainly be it as we have 66.1 hubs.

I'm a little confused about your situation, if I'm reading this right, you bought a set of used RPF1s with a bore that isn't Z fitment?

Here is Enkei's list of critical dimensions and data for the RPF1 rims:
http://www.enkei.com/RacingSeriesSpecs/RPF1.html

Looks like their typical bore diameter is 73mm. As stated, the Z bore is 66.1. You should be looking for rings that fill that space. ~73 mm OD x ~66.1 mm ID.

I cannot help with brand selection, but there are a couple different varieties available:
Aluminum
Plastic

I was about to order some for my RPF1's too. I have had them mounted for about 3 weeks now, I am having no issues running no hubcentric rings. Would you guys reccomend plastic or aluminum ones? (no thread jack OP can benefit too)

Get plastic rings since they can be manipulated a little if there is a slight variance in machining between the wheels and the rings.

Most aftermarket wheels do not come in the exact hub bore required for most cars so that the wheels will fit more cars.

Nissan hub bore is actually 66.06mm, but what is .04mm among friends. My hubcentric rings for my Rota's were 66.1 x 73mm for my 73mm hub bore on the wheels. I got them for $5.99 from National Tire. They are technically only supposed to sell to distibutors and retailers, but I have a friend that owns a Midas so he bought them for me.

it does not matter if you get them exact brand to the wheels. order it from the manufacture or from america's tire. both have exact sizes. i am having no issues at all. if you tight the lugs correctly it should be okay, but id rather be safe than sorry.

Doesn't that defeat the purpose if they don't fit exactly? If they aren't fitting snugly they may as well not be there at all. Close counts in horseshoes and hand grenades as they say.
