I took some kit to be galvanised,they have a minimum charge for a set weight,60 ish where i went,so take all three wheels anchor&chain and anything else you can pull off your rig easily to get your moneys worth..

Nothing, apart from that I thought that bigger is "safer", especially for long distance towing like, Scotland and Cornwall etc. Sometimes I do exceed the 60 mph limit although not intentionally

Powder coating is very durable, if you are worried about the ham fisted lads at quick fit/national tyres damaging new wheels, take them to a wheel refurbishers and ask them to fit the tyres.

I do this with my car wheels, I buy the tyres online and get my alloy wheel specialist to fit them. They know how to handle wheels.

Be very careful of re-galvanising anchor chain - it can be done but only by a limited number of companies - if its coated incorrectly you can end up with a solid "block" of chain and zinc
