I have evo x wheels and need 5mm spacers upfront to turn lock to lock. The rims have a taper cut in to them in the hub area, and because of this and the spacer the rims do not contact the hub to center it. What if anything can I do to fix this?

Hubcentric spacers. I ordered some from ebay a long time ago. They basically have a machined center lip that matches the hub diameter to center the wheel on the spacer the same as it would on the hub.

The picture for 5mm is a generic. There's no place for a ring to go on a spacer so thin. I'm going to try to get some 59mm to 67.1mm rings, and turn them down to fit the interior ring of the hub. Like an extension. I can't find an off the shelf solution... Like usual.
