Hub Centric Rings Thoughts?

Hello!

Got some avid av06 18x8 +35 with 73.1 bore, and Im looking to get hub centric rings. For the research I have done, its 50 50 for plastic vs aluminum. Some people say plastic cracks, and others say aluminum corrode and melt. I do live in Oregon so I deal with rain 9 months of the year. Thoughts? what is the best hub centric ring for a daily?

I'd go aluminum, I had them in MN (think salt / snow) and they were fine. Nothing a tiny amount of anti-seize can't keep at bay as for them sticking. And even if they do, it really doesn't matter. You can easily get your wheel off the car, and they'll just stay in the wheel or on the car itself. Which is where they need to be when you get back to the reassembly steps anyhow.

Plastic did crack, I had them first. Fine for a 1-time installation to get things lined up and tightened down. But if you change your wheels every 6 months like I did, or get in there now and then to putz with brakes, etc. then the aluminum versions are much better.

Melting? Non issue.
