    Dear Mr. Smith:

    This responds to your July 14, 2003, request for information whether Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 211, Wheel Nuts, Wheel Discs, and Hub Caps is still in effect. The answer is no.

    In a Federal Register notice of May 6, 1996, (61 FR 20172, copy enclosed) the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration rescinded FMVSS No. 211. The rescission took effect on June 5, 1996.

    I hope this information is helpful. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact Dorothy Nakama of my staff at this address or at (202) 366-2992.

    Sincerely,

    Jacqueline Glassman
    Chief Counsel
