There is a command \mathring in LaTeX, try

\mathring{R}_{\mu\nu\sigma\lambda} \mathring{R}^{\mu\nu\sigma\lambda}

Set the superscript outside the regular setting:

enter image description here




  \overset{\circ}{R}_{\mu\nu\sigma\lambda}\overset{\circ\sss}{R^{\mu\nu\sigma\lambda}} \qquad
  \overset{\circ}{R}_{\mu\nu\sigma\lambda}\overset{\circ}{R}^{\mu\nu\sigma\lambda} \qquad
