Default C5 Forgestar Hub Fitment Issue

Any C5 Forgestar guys out there (any generation for that matter)...I have an issue with the fit of my new Forgestar F14s. The size/backspacing are fine, it's not an issue with the wheels, but rather seems to be an issue with the axle hub. I tried my best to get a decent picture of it. The large threaded rod shown below protrudes past the front edge of the wheel so I can't put on the center caps. This is only on the rear wheels. The fronts were fine. Anyone else run into this? I tried contacting Forgestar but haven't heard anything back.

There are cases of this occurring, you can do 2 things sir

1. you can get raised caps from Forgestar

2. You can shave the the axle bolt down ( some have done this)

Awesome. Thanks Paul. I'll try getting in touch with Forgestar again.

What did you end up doing?

I'd personally just shave the axle a little and be done with it.
