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.

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 understand the distances and freight charges makes it difficult to resolve. But if they were a half way decent company, they should at least help with the repair cost.
I called them and left a message voicing my concerns they are off for the weekend ill see if they call me back next week

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.

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.

Does not beveled in on both sides make it all a little weak?
Close to going thru I mean.
Just askin.
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

OK
depends on thickness of the steel wheel.
