    Just received my BBS CK's but .......

    As title says, just received my wheels from supplier but there are no centering rings or studs. Am i wrong in saying that I should have received these or are they direct fit replacement for original BE 18" alloys.

    Thanks

    Do you mean spigot rings? I would imagine they are the same size but I aint sure tbh. I'm sure wheel guru will be here soon to let you know the details

    And I presume you bolts when you say studs? I would imagine you just use your current ones..

    Willmac, you should have received / you need spigot rings and 'taper' style bolts too.

    Just to echo the above they come with a fitting kit. Bolts, spigot rings with circlips. Should also have received valves with BBS valve covers/sleeves.

    Will have just been mislaid, I'm sure they'll sort it out.

    Not really N8, makes even more sense now he's said that the tyres were fitted before shipping. Therefore two chances of them being mislaid. They'll also not have been in the original boxes, and may have gone walkies in transit, I'm sure PW will sort it quickly.

    Ditto, their service was faultless with my order too, highly recommended.

    Willie,
    Just noticed this thread, I guess Parcel Force did not deliver the 5th box with the fitting kit in?
    Give me a ring and I will send out another set.

    All,
    Spoken with Phillip and all sorted. Parcelforce issue, not PW.
    No harm done.
    Thanks Phillip.
