ring tests

When making ring tests and looking at all the variables. thickness of the wall ,how much color to clear ratio ,diameter of the ring and the gap itself. Looking at all this, how do you come to the final conclusion if the glass fits or not. I started using a micrometer and feeler gauge to make the measurements and am wondering where to draw the line for compatibility.
Example I am testing a black against clear
OD on the ring is 3.25 in
Thickness is .043 in
black to clear ration is about half with black on the outside
gap is .026 in

i am reading that gap as out of range. what are your thoughts?
