I've realised for some time that rusty wheels nuts are a common problem.
I bought an 02 reg 156 2.0TS Sportwagon in 2005. The nuts were rusted. I replaced them with a full set from an Alfa dealer a few days after purchasing the car. When I sold the car in May 2009, the replacement nuts were as new!!
I think that the nuts that you would buy from an Alfa dealer may be different to those supplied with a new car.
The 159 Sportwagon that I bought in May 2009 had similarly rusted nuts. The Alfa dealer replaced them.
Whilst I was looking around dealers for a 159, rusty nuts were a common sight......
