They are measured by three major, and one minor parameter. The two most important one's are inside diameter (actuall hub diameter), and outer diameter (wheel diameter). The ring must fit snuggly on both the hub, and the wheel. The third is depth, although most have settled on a common dimension for this.
The less important parameter, is more of a design thing. It is important that the ring have a sufficient chamfer (corner break) on edge that is formed by the inside diameter of the ring, and the inward facing suface (the one that faces the car). This assures that the corner will not interfere with the cars interfacing parts. Most will have this feature.
My recommendation is that you call your local Discount Tire (if you have one), and tell them the exact wheel and car info, and let them order a set for you (if they don't have them in stock). If you don't have one of those, track down your wheel manufacture, and find out the closest distributor to you... they'll have them also. The ones from Discount tire are like $6 for a set. They are an ingenious plastic design... and don't even think about running without them... you'll loose your fillings.
It all depends on the wheel. While the rings might (empahsis on might) fit the hubs, you have to check if they will seat in the wheels properly. Pass_variant was right on the money.croman said:ok so my next question is, are hubcentric rings from a B6 A4 the same size as a 02 B5.5 ??/ would they fit? anybody know?

Dude you have to tell the store where ever you buy the rims that you need the rings. Yes you need the rings for aftermarklet wheels!!!toneloc07 said:ok so then i will always get them if i buy good normal rims from a store and not cheap ones, cuz i was thinking of oz superlegs or some adr or maybe bbs not sure yet, or hp will all these come with the rings
