    Bentley GT alloys "spigot ring"

    Hey,

    I'm running some Bentley GT wheels on my S3.im having juddering issues and I've been told it could be the fact there are no spigot rings keeping the wheel central to the hub.Does anyone running GT's have spigot rings?

    Cheers

    The balancing does need sorting.the thing that's throwing me is that I've had two sets of rims on the car and they have both had problems.my last set where balanced perfect and they where juddering,but I am running the same tyres on the GT's so they could be the problem.
