Explanations regarding types of convex seats
There are two different versions of convex tapered seats, the spherical seat and the tapered.
   
The spherical seat is the curved surface of a section of a sphere -arrow A-. This type of convex seat is sometimes used for genuine wheel rims.
The tapered seat is the flat surface of a section of a taper -arrow B-. This type of convex seat is sometimes used for wheel rims of the accessories trade.

  Note
Make sure the correct wheel bolts are fitted → Electronic Parts Catalogue “ETKA”.
On each vehicle, the same wheel bolts must be used for all 4 wheel rims.
