I am trying to resolve this issue by machining a new centering ring, but not sure how I am going to do that at the moment.

For now, I am going to reword the post to say 5x108, which uses the same hub size, and are a lot more common than 4x108. They are used on the new Focus, and lots of other Fords, Mazda's, and I think even Jaguars.
The only issue with that is, finding a wheel in 5x108 that isn't larger than 17" as there aren't many 17" wheel options for that specific bolt pattern.

Mazda does not use 5x108. They use the more common 5x4.5 or 5x114.3 which is shared mustang, evo, ect..

Well that's just awesome... I read somewhere on here that the new focus shared the same wheel pattern with a lot of earlier fords, and a lot of Mazda's

So I live in Tennessee, could you redrill mine so I can fit 4x4.5? And how much would it cost all together? 4x108 to 4x114.3

5x100 is the easiest to do and probably the strongest. As far as the 4 bolt patterns go, I'm not sure what I can do quite yet. I need to see the different hub center sizes
