Wheels fitted to older cars with nuts generally don't need spigot rings. They were never needed on Viva hubs as the taper on the nuts centre the wheel, assuming you've fitted proper 4" PCD wheels of course. Wheels with bolts need spigot rings to centre the wheel so that the bolts can be easily fitted.
