    Default third gen Monaro and VY GTS wheels?

    Hi
    I recently bought some VY GTS wheels which I want to fit to my 2002 Monaro. I thought they would be a straight fit but it appears the centre hub is about 4mm wider than the centre recess on the face of the rim. There appears to be an outer ring on the hub which increases its overall diameter. It did have aftermarket Speedy rims which I have removed and sold. I also have original Monaro rims and they also don't fit properly. Any help would be appreciated.
    cheers

    It does look a bit like the centering ring from the old wheel has seized onto the hub spigot instead of coming off with the wheel, you should be able to get that piece off.

    thanks 76lxhatch - you were spot on. Removed the rings and fitted the wheels.
