This only happens to *hitty made wheels. On the other hand, it could theoretically happen to any wheel if you drive your car off a cliff.

No wonder they come with center caps. The double pattern mounting holes look like crap in that configuration. Couldn't they have indexed them evenly spaced from each other?
