I think that's how Buchanans does it, but not certain - punch or drill as required to match hubs. Again, check me on this, but that's what I remembered from when I had my wheels built by them.

Correct on the lack of punches or dimples - the Sun rims don't have them. Just drilled holes. Ive heard that Sun's aren't as strong as dimpled Excel's but not sure if that is due to the dimples or not. When I build another set, I plan to try the Excel's.
