147 Alloys

Last few weeks i've noticed the nuts on my alloys and the brake covers (is that what you call them?!) going rusty which i found weird!

Anyone else had this? And is there good method of sorting this out coz its ****ed me off!

Re: 147 Alloys

The wheel nuts could be painted in Hammerite if you desired.

I've a set of chrome look caps I can sell you for a fiver if you want them-they don't fit over the locking nut in the GT so I never bothered with them.

It doesn't bother me that much to be honest.
