Good question, in 3-piece wheels 2 halves of the wheel are held together by a separate wheel face and bolts. IN 2-piece wheels the barrel of the wheel is a single piece and the face is either bolted on or welded on. Hope this helps explain. In 3-piece wheels there is a seal that seals up the 2 barrel halves, this could deteriorate over time and the wheel could leak. This however is not a problem with 2pc wheels because the wheel barrel is single piece.
