<VV> Concentric wheel spacer necessary?

#### I've owned & operated large buses & coaches in the UK all my life. The 
old British coaches, as with all cars of that era, had conical lug nuts & 
countersunk holes in the wheels. The wheels were located solely by the studs 
& nuts. They also had left-hand threads on the left side of the vehicle. 
Then they changed to the European system of having a register on the hub to 
locate the wheel, and flat lug nuts. Right-hand threads all round. Now we 
have a thing called "Wheel-loss syndrome" where the twin wheels on the left 
rear keep falling off. That's progress, I guess, - if it ain't broke, fix it 
till it is.

Big trucks use either hub centered or stud centered on disk wheels but not 
both.  They carry a lot of weight so I'm guessing that using normal Corvair 
studs and tapered seats is more than good enough.
When I bought my '64 Spyder I ran it pretty had before really looking it 
over and it had a nut missing on a rear wheel.  3 held it together fine so 
I'm thinking 4 is plenty.
