    They can't help if they don't know.

    At least they have been bashed on the internet and we know not to buy from them ever.

    Default Wheel adapters beveled on wrong side

    They did offered to take mine back for a refund, but wouldn’t replace them with properly machined parts. Their excuse was they are only meant for off road use, and thats the way they make all of them. I may reach back out to them if I can find someone to ream them for a reasonable cost.

    I may be missing something here but my plates go on the inside of the rim and not the outside. Those look like different rims than mine as well if you look at the bolt count.

    Its better to be informed than to just think you are.

    I beveled the back side of my m35a3 rims so that I could run them either way. Same issue as you, needed to bevel them. I used a HSP1-2-82T countersink and did it on a Bridgeport. You could do it with hand tools if you had a big enough chuck adapter.

    Not quite sure i understand what your trying to say but the factory deuce rims as well as the 5 ton and fmtv and im sure others that run duals on the back have wheels that are beveled on both sides so as far as making it weaker i dont think it will be an issue
