I'm like inches away from ordering a set, I have read this whole thread, but I need to make sure of a couple things.

1. Do I have to have hub centric rings, sorry just quite clear on?
2. Do I have to have longer lug nuts? Currently have gorilla from cjponyparts.com
3. Has everyone just swapped out their TPMS sensors from old stock rims to new rotas?
4. On H&R springs and daily driver is 9.5 width really too much??? I feel like I'm going insane. I've put the 8.5 and the 9.5 in the cart 300 times (feels like)!

Thanks

I have these exact questions! Is there anything I need to buy to swap the TPMS sensors? I know tirerack sells a rebuild kit or something.

Depending on miles, you may be better off having a shop swap them (on them if they break them) or buying another set. Have the set mounted along with tires by wheel dude.

Your aftermarket lugs should be good. The stock ones are just too wide for anything aftermarket.

Should order a set of hub rings from wheeldude. Pain in the ass ordering from Amazon and the built wheels from wheel dude usually do not already come hubcentric

9.5 may be too wide but it depends on if your car is lowered, offset of the wheel ordered, and stretched tires?

I'm running 10" wide and I have to cut my fenders.

Cool thank you a ton for your help and I talked to wheeldude.com today and added the rings for $10. I went with 8.5 hyper black and am absolutely stoked.
Now, tires are a different story, I was going to get the bfgoodrich super comp 2 in a 235/40 18 but they are on national back order. So the tire place says I can get 245/40 18 in that tire. Should I do that or stick with stock measurement in a falken.
