Wheelers steelies: Centering rings

Howdy,

Just scored 5 Wheeler's steelies, type B on Craigslist, $260 w/crap tires. The ID of the wheel is 110mm, and my hubs are 106mm... do I need to get the centering rings?

The wheels came with some worn out BFG ATs on them (20%), they wobble like a MF on the truck, bad. My first thought was that they just need a balance but after reading some stuff about centering ring/adapters I'm thinking it might be in my best interest to run those too. I'm sure the tires are flawed but I figure I might as well run 'em for a few K. The wobble seems a bit different than from unbalanced tires... very consistant. I did notice some 'play' when mounting the lugs but it seemed like they centered as I torqued them down. The wobble starts at 45mph and gets proportionately worse as speed increases.

Anyone with wheelers steelies need to get centering rings? Kinda curious that Wheeler's doesn't sell them on their site...

Thanks

Edit: they also came with the appropriate Gorilla lugs.

Getting hub centric adapters or the centering rings is probably the first thing I would do. I've def heard of vibration issues when you run a wheel with a larger hub bore.
