My opinion is things are machined to match up. Close don't count. You take your chances. You've been lucky. Some haven't.
Rant over.
Now back to your regular programming!
That's how I see it. Too many instances where I've seen "close enough" scenarios turn out bad. Spacers reducing the amount of thread engagement, wrong offset causing brake interference, or bolt patterns not matching up. Heck, you know how many Hondas I see come in with acorn lug nuts on their ball seat rims?

I'm not trying to be a jerk either. But it burns me to see so many people offering up bad information, and being pissed when someone comes up and says otherwise.
