    the casting on the wheel is thicker at the leading edge
    there is a good reason for that and its not aerodynamics
    also beware to note which spacer goes on which side ( i mark mine )
    very easy ( as you found ) to get the wheel off center
    also note the direction of rotation of the discs they are stronger in one direction than another
