<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.
