Has anyone else had the rim holes and Lug nuts look like mine
Eugene, I think that the lug nuts were just under torqued. The groove may have been cut into the lug nuts because the wheel was loose and wobbling.

I took a bus to Phoenix yesterday and saw that some of the buses had lug nut indicators on them.

Wheel-Check, loose wheel-nut indicator, made in North America

As someone has said earlier a torque wrench is almost a must if a person doesn't have a real good feel for torquing bolts and nuts. Clean threads are important also when torquing. I have been using a tough of anti-seize for years on my lug nuts but don't recommend it for others.
