In Topic: Face mounting wheels without machining..

Depends if the center is machined like that from the manufacturer. It also depends on the shape of the barrel and lip

 

I know you can face mount BBS RS and OZ Futuras using spacers between the lip and barrel

 

The lips and barell should rest on the face of the center and not just be held together with the bolts, as these will shear!

I imagine if they're expensive wheels etc, he was trying to reduce the risk of them becoming damaged or coated in crap from the motorway, not rocket science, especially if they're one-offs (think I heard it said they were)?

I drove from Oslo to Edition 38 a few years back, on wheels worth 8K! Not a problem if you have quality wheels. A wash and a wipe down after I arrived and they where fine
