How important are they? Due to my rusted out rotors (which i replaced), 2 of my hub centric rings broke when i switched to my winter set of wheels. Now that spring is here im looking to go back to my summer set, but need to buy the rings..
would a place like tire discounters have them?

Any respectable tire place should carry them. Where did you buy the wheels from? I'd probably start with them.

very important, and you need to buy the proper size.
when the center bore of the wheel is larger than the hub on the car, the ring makes up the difference. This in turn takes the added stress off the wheel studs.
to get the proper size, the shop needs to measure the center bore of the wheel along with the hub on the car to find the right size.
