    I bought one of these hoops that you speak of but was unsure about how safe it would be to skim off 1/8” of the outer dia of the wheel center. The center lip is 1/8 to begin with. Skimming it on the lathe would leave 1/16. Some said that I need to press fit the parts.

    I was wandering what wheelkid did, wandering if he had wheel hoops specially made for center to slip into

    Would be nice to know, most of the rims I find are pitted on the inside
