LMs are a 2 piece wheel, with the barrel being one piece.No sealant is necessary.Just make sure you use loc-tite on those bolts when you put em back together (reverse mounted I hope)BBS RMs are a 2 piece wheel as well, but because the lip is one piece, and the face/barrel is the 2nd piece, it splits the barrel, and needs sealant.
What he said... You can also reverse mount the face to get a bit more dish ou of the barrel as well!
Too short?The distance that the bolts need to be sunk is exactly the same. Shouldn't need to do any machining. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
It works! I had the weights in the way and didnt even notice Project still underway if you hadn't posted up that picture I wouldn't have double checked. thanks!. need to find out the proper torque for bolts now.
after hours of reading stories about wheels failing/breaking Ive decided that it would not be a good idea to change the design that bbs spent countless hours perfecting/testing for safety and reliability. They will be sent in for refinishing and proper re-assembly.
