Iforged should be able to supply you with that data. In fact, they should give you (or sell if you bought your wheels second hand), the rings. I got them when I purchased wheels from DPE. They are inexpensive plastic rings. They probably cost less than $5 to produce. BTW, when your lug bolts are tightened, that should help center the wheel on the hub. Hopefully, these rings do the trick.

Hub centric rings are manufactured so that when they are installed on a vehicle, the wheels are located directly off of the centre flange of the brake drum or rotor. This is done to insure that the outer beads of the wheel are concentric with the wheel bearings. The result is a much truer, better balanced tire/wheel assembly. This is very important with modern high tech suspension systems.
