Default Volk GT-C's. Do they come apart?

I was wondering if anyone new if/how these come apart? Can you remove the center section (just the spokes)? or is the center welded in place?

Yeah, they are a two-piece wheel. It's forged outer and a casted center

So I just unscrew the allen bolts and the face should pop right out, right?

OK. Makes sense.

Good luck with that. Seems like something that must be very, very precise or you'll get unwanted vibrations.

It's a 2-piece wheel as stated previously so it's possible. Probably unnecessary, but I'd just mark the orientation of the center/disk relative to barrel/rim. But make sure you use loctite (blue) when reassembling. As far as torque spec, it'll probably be around 20 ft-lbs but check for that specific bolt strentch, pitch, and diameter if you know it.
