The lugs nuts and bolts on the wheels are stripping. Consumer went to get new tires, and tire service dealer said nuts and bolts located on the front driver's side were defective and stripped. No indication as to how or why this occurs but the threads are not maufactured properly and are defective.

Wheel and/or hub cap squeaks are evident at lower road speeds. I complained to dealer in October of last year, and the noise from the wheel/hub caps was getting worse. At that time the car was still under warranty, and I feel that this should be corrected by the manufacturer and/or dealer.
