    They fit fine in the wheel, and the hub ring of the spacer is no where near the weight, but maybe there's still a chance the factory hub ring protrudes too much?

    i think it's the cover for the hub nut that is touching and not the hub lip itself being the problem. That's probably why spacers help.

    Could always just take them off. They're plastic on F chassis and we remove them to do spacers anyway

    This is exactly what the issue is with stock ZHP wheels. The new caps are thicker (because of the weight, obviously) and hit the hub nut cover and prevent it from going in all the way, ever so slightly. Thats what I tried to say in my first post and what prevents a stock ZHP from using these caps.

    Wouldn’t a rubber mallet and some beer help with the clearance issue? Or am I just a brute? Lmao
