I have never seen that. Any chance someone widened the rims and put them together wrong?

I've given up trying to work out what other people have done.

Only the person that did it can tell us.

Where did you get that spacer from? How thick is it and what year car are you putting those rims on? Is it needed?

That spacer or support is needed when putting 32-35 wire wheels on the hydraulic drums.Speedway sells them.

Seems like it would be fun to check pressure and add air.

Maybe these wheels were the type with bolt in removable spokes and someone assembled them backwards?
