Can't tell from the info given. You'll need to find out the hub bore size. If not, you can still use them just make sure to get adapters and the right lug nuts.

They are not. I ran these for a few months and had to use those hubcenteric rings.

Where did you get your rings from? Is there any issue with running spacers on the rings?

I just got some new ProComp 16x8 wheels with my stock tires and am experiencing horrible steering wheel shakes. I don't think my wheels are hubcentric and I think I need the spacers. Does this sound like a common problem? Should local tire shops have these available for install?

Don't know about local tire shops having the rings in stock. I would also make sure you get a road force balance. These couple of things should cure your shakes.

Hub centric means the wheel is centered on the hub and tou use flat factory styled lug nuts. Lug centric is flared nut hole with tapered acorn style lugs. The tapered shape means the hub just has to be big enough to fit and does not need to be precise because the lug nut holes will self center the wheel while tightening unless you dont seat the rim all the way. A ring is useless since it does not do anything if you have acorn style nuts.

If your wheels are not hub centric you do not need a hub ring... you need your tires balanced.

Not hub centric... just use acorn style nuts.

the Toyota Tacoma's are lug centric...
the Wheeler's steelies are lug centric...

I ran them on my '00 Tacoma for years...
they will balance fine... using a lug centric backing plate...
Unless something else on the front end is to blame.

Most tire shops will balance using a cone front and rear on the balance machine...
unless you ask specifically for use of a lug centric backing plate...
Some tire shops still act like they don't know... or are lazy about it

If no lug centric backing plate is used...
it can be a hit or a miss deal...
sometimes you get lucky

The lug centric backing plate is used as well when road force balancing.

For those running aft. mrkt. alloys...
sometimes a standard 60* conical lug may not suffice and may be unsafe.
Primarily because of the thickness of the wheel at the lug opening...
In this case an ET (extended thread) lug nut will need to be fitted.
It is still a 60* tapered lug...
but has an extended crown that seats deeper into the wheel's lug openings
and offers more thread bite...
and in addition to that... the crown that extends into the wheels lug holes
helping to center the wheel on the lug bolts.

^ ET lug nuts are not needed when running Wheeler's steelies...
a standard 60* tapered acorn will suffice...

I recently changeed out my Wheeler's type "B" steelies for
ProComp 8069's... and came to realize the standard lugs
used for the steelies would not suffice to center the wheels at the lug bolts properly...
as well were unsafe... as they no longer had enough thread bite and balanced poorly.

just sharing my experience

Per johnny at wheelers, Those are lugcentric wheels. use the acorn style lugnuts they sell. You don't need hubcentric rings, in fact he said the hubcentric rings might not even work on the steel wheels.

I have those wheels and the acorn style lugs on my tacoma, and have no vibes, so you should be all good. Just remember when you torque the lugnuts down, to do it while the tire is off the ground, not on the ground.

No prob. Trust me, I was worried about it too, but I have yet to have any vibes because of the wheels. I had discount tire mount them. Johnny said they have a couple rigs there running those wheels too and none of them have vibes.

That does reassure me. Saves me additonal headaches, been having some bad luck with these wheels but looks like smooth sailing from here *knock on wood*
