Amazingly Alfa cannot supply them so I get rust stains on the wheels. Does everyone else have this problem? Anybody know where I can get a set for an 05 GT?

I seem to say this a lot these days:

Give your wheel nuts a coat of Hammerite smooth silver and they'll be good as new.
Never heard of them rusting badly enough to leave marks on the wheels themselves before though.

Try Lyles of Newcastle, they are independant Alfa Specialists, they got me a set of chrome wheel bolts for my 156 and theyre still as good as new.

I bought some nice chrome effect bolt covers from ebay for £17. Make sure you get them for 17mm bolts though.

ebay or any decent wheel retailer. bolts are fairly standard: 12mm x 1.25mm thread pitch, thread length around 30mm.

part the problem is when you install them. the socket and torque will slightly damage the edges, exposing them to corrosion.
