The stock speakers didn't provide any reusable mounting rings. The 6.5" Kicker woofers weren't big enough to fill in the holes (the larger 6.75" drivers would probably have fit well), so I bought these mounting adapters off Sonic Electronix:

Xscorpion USPA-5060: 2 @ $2.99

They worked well and were really easy and cheap. If you rotate them just right, they line up pretty tightly over the existing cut-out. I did drill a couple of holes in each door to match the brackets, but that took seconds and didn't bother me to do.
