  1. Anyone getting rusty wheel weights?

    Alfa Giulia
    So Alfa seem to have finally sorted the wheel bolts that rusted instantly, but now they seem to be using cheap balancing weights that rust! Anyone else experienced this? Looks like a real eyesore. Wheels are frequently cleaned using Bilberry, plus the occasional use of Iron X.
  2. 932 series rim weights

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
