The tire has 15" holes and the rim has (apparently) a 5/8" lip.

Moon disk are convex for strength, spindle clearance (sometimes you'll see them with a hole or bullet in the middle) but mostly so they *catch the light* better.

Overhanging the lip? Everyone opines that the disk would wear on the tire sidewall and simply destroy it. I think the tire and the disk are moving together and it would be more of a press and release, at the bottom where the sidewall deforms. The guys that run the Mariani Farms roadster know the facts.

What else can I do with these things?
When I try to process that I have a halting problem.
