Hi Phil:
I think the concern was that if the alloy wasn't on the hub "lip" and was 
just flush against the UFO rotor, the shear strength of the wheel was carried 
solely by the 5 bolts holding the alloy pressed against the UFO.

I've personally seen two such set ups separate on tracks.......
The last was from (arguably) the old severe transition from the road course 
to the NASCAR loop at NHIS.  Its there where the rim came off the car.  
Thankfully, Alan came to a soft rest in the level grass....................

A safety concern to all when we whizz around WG.
