Some that knows more will have to enlighten.
Exactly. The wheel bore is usually chamfered where it meets the lip, so you can use that area on the spacer to build a lip, but it doesn't work well with all wheels.

Let me try fixing it with Kalim tomorrow. Sigh, if it doesn't work out maybe I'll try the 12mm. Which vendor did you buy it from?

It's also used for SMG, which is maybe why they list it.
I wouldn't trust a generic fitment guide in the first place, though.

I enjoy how, after spending some time with Miles, Frank is getting trolled in lieu of Miles.

I'll check the cap. I'll also check the label on Mercedes one.
