HELP - Hub Centric Rings and Steelies??

Hey guys,

Might be a dumb question, but I've never ran into this situation before. I had aftermekrt wheels on my car for the summer, now winter is comin and I'm putting the stock steelies back on.

When my aftermarket wheels were installed, they put a Hub centric ring on as well.

Now, I have my steelies on and I have a seriosu wobble in my steering wheel and I'm getting a knockin/rattling sound (not a consistant pattern or anything, just random).

I'm wondering if anybody knows if either of these issues woulc be linked to having the hub centric rings left on the hub with my steelies!?

Any help is great, guys!!

Did you remove the hub centric ring? You can't leave it on for the steelies you know. They must stay with the aftermarket rims. If you forgot one on there that is your problem, remove it before you damage the studs.
