Is there a benefit to using plastic as opposed to metal? Looking at amazon, for example, I see the metal ones sell more than the plastics. I went ahead and bough both metal and plastic to play around with.

Thanks. I was confused as when i inquire for the installation and i asked about that, he said that it doesnt need one as the rims is lug-centric. But i guess he's wrong.
He is wrong or doesn’t know any better. All wheels should be hub centric. You want weight and load on the center or hun and not the lugs

Plastic is cheaper and typically does not seize to the bore of the wheel like the metal ones do. They can melt a bit if your tracking your car hard and putting a lot of heat in the corners from braking. The metal ones is what I normally use for durability but I apply a little grease so removing them is easy.

Unless you track you car, plastic will be fine. I mean, Tire Rack sends plastic rings with all the wheels they sell. If they were going to be a problem, they wouldn't recommend them.

I don't plan on tracking it anytime soon tbh, for now, it's my daily driver so I'll probably just do the plastic and keep the metal as a back up.

I already have the correct lugs, that wasn't the issue, luckily.
