Title: Fastening arrangement for a vehicle wheel consisting of an interior wheel shell and of an exterior wheel shell

Abstract: A fastening arrangement for a motor vehicle wheel made of a light metal alloy which is formed by an interior wheel shell and an exterior wheel shell which are fastened to a wheel disk chamber by way of wheel bolts which are arranged concentrically with respect to a wheel hub. The two shells of the wheel can be connected in a mutually sealed manner by way of wheel bolts inserted in bushes, and the bushes are pressed into bores of the shells and held in an embedded manner in a sealing mass. A spacer member is interposed between the wheel chamber and the interior wheel shell. The spacer member is made of a material different than the material of the interior wheel shell and the material of the brake chamber, to facilitate corrosion resistance.
