I have noticed this too - it comes from too many diamond-cuttings. But its nature, the process involves cutting material from the face of the wheel. After a few times the wheel gets noticeably thinner, but the centre cap still sits in the same place. One set of mine has the little fillet at the side of the spokes almost completely machined away so the centre caps look like they're about to fall out!

The fillet should extend all the way to the centre (red arrow) but on these it's almost gone. On mine the fillet is almost gone by the orange arrow!
