Do you need hub rings with spacers?

Hey all, I have some TSW wheels I was thinking of getting some spacers. My wheels use hub-rings. Can you buy spacers that have 72.56 bore, therefore no more need for hub-rings?

Are their any vibrations with spacers, or maybe less than with rings? And any recommendation on spacers?

I don't want to get something too aggressive that stresses the wheel bearings. maybe 10-12 mm? I have a 2011 e92 328 xdrive coupe. Don't know much about spacers. I think these wheels look a little in-set. Would make the car more aggressive and maybe make less attention drawn to the wheel gap haha.

If you can find them, you could certainly just get spacers that are the correct size for the BMW hub and then have the correct hub size to fit your wheel. If you can't find that, then you would need to run standard BMW spacers and keep the hub ring to reduce it down to the BMW hub size on the spacer.

So I could get a spacer with a 72.56 center bore, as needed for e92. Then, there is another hub or whaterver on the outside of the spacer where I would have to put a ring to fit the 76mm bore of my TSW aftermarket wheels? Or do I put the spacer with a 72.56 hub on the car, then I Just screw the wheel flat on the otherside of the spacer without a ring?

Thanks for your help.
