FYI - when you get your rims back from the powder coater make sure to remove the powder coat from the lug nut lips on the rims. I did on my bus rims I had powder coated last summer with some 80 grit, there are stories on the samba about the coating failing, lugs loosening up and wheels falling off.

Your wheels fall off? Man I HATE when that happens! Shocked

So far my bolts haven't budged (had them coated 5 years ago) as I read the same thing you did hubcapt...of course, my rig just sits so it COULD happen if I ever drive it! Embarassed
