SRAM Force Chainrings on Ultegra?

I may want to go from 50/34 compact to 50/36 and I see that SRAM Force chainrings are available in that size in 110 bcd. Will those rings work correctly on my Ultegra crank? TIA

Because there is no standard for the thickness of a chainring or the location of the teeth on the ring. Nor regarding the pins and ramps that aid shifting. They should bolt up. They *might* perform as well but then, they might not. Even among Shimano models you're taking a risk interchanging rings.

Force can't be cheap. Why not stick with the correct replacement parts?

Should cost about $110 for both rings .... reason for changing is lack of a 36 tooth Shimano inner ring. Again, this is something I MAY consider doing. Have SRAM chain and casette already on bike and working fine.

if your outer ring is not worn out, then just an inner ring will work.
