Do you guys find its better to weld the two halves together or bolt them together? With my DMI front hubs the holes are small enough  that the only thing that will fit are jet nuts to attach the bolts. I'm not going to spend the money to buy the Ti bolt kits for 4 wheels but even buying 40 jet nuts and standard bolts isn't that cheap. I realize you're losing the whole wheel when it's damaged but you don't have the extra weight and cost, if I can talk my buddy into welding 4 wheels together for beer.

I use the welded together halfs, the rotational inertia penalty of steel nuts and bolts on the front wheels is just too much in my opinion.
