Thanks for your input!
interesting, thank you Ski! I remember on my G35 coupe when I ran a winter setup I had to install center hub rings to account for a similar issue, maybe that is it! I will re-install my OEM 20"s tomorrow, but I need this resloved before Colorado snow starts in 2-3 months!@P3D_Denver,
Right now we’re trying to research and figure out if the 19” Sports will even fit in the P3D+ hubs due to something @FlyNavy01 discovered with a 3mm raised ‘lip’ on the hub of the P3D+. He tried to mount some aftermarket rims and had issue with them not sitting ‘flush’ to the hub due to the lip....turns out the inside of the 20” rim is bored out just to accommodate that lip.
Check post #23 and #29 in the following thread for this....photos included. There’s also a later post of the bore out on the inside of the 20” Sport rim.
Oh. @FlyNavy01 had to use 5mm spacers to get the rims to seat properly I believe. Maybe he can chime in here.
P3D+ misc info and pics- wheel weight, calipers, suspension
Let me know if what you find out.
i think you are correct, they did say they were concerned with the wheel connection to the hub. Unfortuantely they closed right after I left. I will have them reinstall the 20"s tomorrow and hopefully T-Sport line is developing (maybe 3D-printing) some kind of center hub ring/attachment to resolve this.My guess is that the wheel isn't flush against the rotor hat. That's sort of weak that the shop didn't notice it.

Do you know the centerbore of the Tsportline wheels? I'm having a set made for me by a friend, but my hub is probably a different size.
I do not know the centerbore, I can measure tomorrow after I get the OEM 20s re-installed.
I want T-Sportline to take resopnsiblity, I specifically asked them about 19" wheels on the P3D+ as I was concerned with larger red brake caliper clarance and they said it was not an issue. I made the dumb assumption they tested their wheels on a P3D+. Oh well, hopefully they can make me whole soon!
I think it's real bad to torque down a wheel that's not flush with hub. My friend did that when he left an extra hub centric spacer on the hub when swapping the stock wheels back on to his car. It caused "galling" on the studs and they snapped when the wheel was removed (after he noticed it wasn't sitting flush). We had to replace the hub. Major PITA. Definitely give everything a very thorough looking over when they take off the wheels. Personally I wouldn't drive it if the wheels are loose.
the tire shop is literally 1/4 mile away, i only put 15 miles on it, didn’t drive too fast, i think i’ll be ok.I second this. I, personally, would not drive on them. Know anyone with a floor jack that can help you out?
