You need them if your aftermarket wheel is not a 57.1 hub size. Which in all likely it wont be. So you need the rings to fit in side the new wheel and match up to the hub on the car!
Most common size ring is 73x57.1

Yes, it can lead to vibration. Without them you will have a lugcentric fit (weight of wheel rests on lugs) instead of a hubcentric fit (rests on hub). When the weight rests on the lugs, it can cause the lug holes on the wheel to warp and lead to vibration.
