Re: Rusty nuts!!!!!

try wheel bolt covers, a nice new set of chrome covers always makes a noticable difference to your car.

Re: Rusty nuts!!!!!

There were some on ebay, £2.50 including postage for a set of 20 - can they really make them that cheap? Wasn't sure if this was a con, if they're made from cheese and will make your wheels fall off.

The same's happened to mine, they're all tarnished and rusty.
