Which hub centric rings?

Since November, I've changed my summer setup (AFS 20" style 87s) for my 18" style 69s. The thing is my reps came with hub centric rings that I had on for my 20s, but as I changed to my 18s I noticed how corroded and out of shape the rings have been. Now I'm wondering if this rings are necesary to have for when I put back my 20s come spring time. If so, does anyone know where I can pick up some quality rings that'll last longer than 6 months? Also what size would I need? IIRC they were 74.1mm?

Thanks for the help everyone!

Yes, if you had hub-centric rings for your 20's then you'll need to replace them when they get corroded. The 74.1mm -> 72.56mm rings would be the standard sizing for most aftermarket rims. You can order them from http://www.1010tires.com/ (I recommend the aluminum vs. the plastic). Good luck!

E53 hub size is 72.56mm, though interesting that the E70 might use a slightly larger hub. That would certainly prevent most of the E53 aftermarket hubs (at 74.1mm) from being reused on the E70. That sucks!
