Lets say that the during the T6 treatment, there was a small batch that weren't heated properly. Triangle wouldn't have sold you the batch and the parts would never have made it onto your wheels. But thats not what happened. You were FULLY aware that your centers were machined to the incorrect specs and decided to Jerry Rig the barrels to fit the centers. The fault is not on the barrels, they were properly made, the fault lies with ADV1 soley. You knew there was an issue and decided to ignore it.
