Re: 155 wheel nuts

suggest you speak to just about any alloy wheel distributor any they will be able to supply new after market ones for considerably less than £5.50 each, remember, ebay is your friend

Re: 155 wheel nuts

Yes.. whatever finish you use, it'll gradually get chopped off by the wheel nut socket you use, so I'd stick with a paint finish, so you touch them up again whenever they need re-doing.

Chroming also makes iron brittle.. not sure brittle wheel bolts is ever a good idea.
