    Welding a bead to the inside of the rime to catch the cover seems like it will work. When I get a chance to look at one of the rims, I'll see how they designed them and try to mimic it. The taper to the inside lip does make sense. I like to check the lugs on my vehicles before long trips so the adhesive would be problematic for me. Although, a good alternative.
