No, it's been years (I'm guessing 5+) since rings were needed for te37's.

I bought them in 2012 from a vendor on here. Don't know when they were manufactured but they were brand new in the box still. Vibrated badly on first drive, perfect with rings.

Maybe I was just unlucky. Even if they aren't hub centric, rings are a quick fix.

Edit: misread your post but still rings aren't a big deal.

Slicer is a baller, keeps his wheels for no longer than 2-3 months. No reason to challenge him.

Hahah... I just like to switch things up to keep the car interesting. It's cheaper than buying a new car

I have OG TEs and they required very thin rings. I got them used so not sure of the manufacture date.
