Center bore much larger

So I was looking at different wheels and ran into some that i like, but the bore is much bigger than the oem. the wheels i was looking at are the JNC001.

What can I do to get these to fit?(i am an amateur with anything car related btw)

thanks in advance

yah centering rings is all it takes. but most aftermarket wheels for j-cars are lug-centric by design. means you dont need the centering rings as the wheel centers to the hub using the tapered lugs. it uses different lugs vs your factory ball type lugs.

usually wheel stores will give u a set of lugs, but check on it if u decide to buy.

^ You're right that the wheel should self-center as you cross-tighten the lugs, but I have always heard that the wheel studs primary job is to handle the tension force of clamping the wheel to the hub. The reason for the hubcentric ring interfacing with the wheel is to handle the shear force. Studs are strong for tension, but not so much for shear which is where the hubcentric ring does its job.

that is if the wheel is a hubcentric design.

lugcentric wheels do not rely on the hub. you do not think those plastic centering rings some shops provide supports the weight of the car do you?
