Rusty wheel nuts!


We have a 2013 Punto with alloy wheels, and the wheel nuts have already turned a nasty orange colour. The most of it comes off after a good scrub but they still don't look pretty. Does anyone know if we can get some wheel nut covers or something? If so where is the best place for them?

Re: Rusty wheel nuts!

I'm afraid the original finish isn't very hardy for the UK weather.

I would take them off and clean them with abrasive paer before recoating in something like the above or wheel steel or what ever colour you wish.
