Just make sure when you slide the ring over that it is flush with the front side of the FGX wheel. At least on my car the 0571 fronts had waaaay too much steering so choose wisely on the pit fronts but also know that if you use the RIDE 104 front wheels all of the normal FGX tires fit that wheel.
Yeah... I've done the same thing and always wondered if Home Depot doesn't carry tubing the same diameter and thickness... also the cost of two wheels per tire
