Wax Toilet Rings

Do these rings by chance come WITHOUT the plastic funnel thing on them? I installed my AS toilet in my basement the other day and the included ring had this funnel on it. The toilet does not sit flush with the floor with that funnel on it. I found a ring at HD today with no plastic funnel on it but it's not an extra think size and I'm concerned about possible leaking.

Can the funnel be removed from a ring by chance or is it all the way through the wax side to side??

Funnel type rings stink... I never use them. They cause issues from my 30 year experience.

The funnel cannot be removed..

Get a thicker wax ring if needed or use two standard size rings.. Basically double them up..

I'm not a plumber but have used/liked the wax seals with the plastic flange. I would think if your commode doesn't set flush either there is another problem of the wax seal isn't set properly. That plastic flange shouldn't hold the commode off of the floor.
