are you saying the wheel doesnt press against the hub on your car?

i'll investigate this tomorrow as i'm going to be putting new wheels on, but i'm not sure what you are referring to. a spacer would only move the same mating surface out further. I have a set of 15mm spacers for my old summer wheels and literally, its the face of the hub extended 15mm, there's nothing that would allow more contact with the hub face.the rim would bottom against the caliper if anything. the chamfer on the front and rear wheels is the same.

yeah, i know it doesn't make much sense. i'll re-do the install today and see if i i can confirm my findings. hopefully not.
