    Inside the lip style if you're gonna mig weld. Take a flapper disk and clean up the weld so it's as flat as possible. They work like a charm, even when the loose nut behind the wheel gets a little crazy.

    i was thinking the ones that drop into the center would be easier to weld since they self center themselves.
    i have a guy in state that can make me a set for 150$ out of 1/4'' plate
