The LW bulkheads have less material


And as for weak spots, it all depends on what and how you hit something.

If I am not mistaken, the U2151's require that you use at least 1mm of shims between the wheel and the hex, asthe axle has a short should that extends past the hex. I use them in the rear since I run spacers back there on foam carpet anyway.
