As we know for aftermarket sport rim, sometime the centre hub doesn't fit exactly to the car. So a plastic centric ring is used for aftermarket rim fittment. I heard that rubber ring is better than aluminium type as it take vibration better...of course down side is that, it have to be changed frequently if it deformed. It can changed during tyre rotation....Do anyone have experience in this to share? And is these rings absolutely needed?

it's not made of rubber and plastic is a too general term.

it's made of polyamide or PA 6/6, may call it nylon.

It is mis-perception that the the screws and nuts are suppose to take the weight. But the truth is, the centre hub is supposed to take the load instead. The screws and nuts are just serving the purpose of securing the wheels, they are not design to take the impact load of the road defects transmitted from the wheels.

MY personal opinion , both material serve same purpose. But
metal will corrode and you may have problem to remove when you need TO mount you spare tyre .
well treated metal can overcome above issue.

Prodrive uses aluminum center reduction rings. It is more solid compare to plastic ones.
