    wondered what the consensus was on alloy wheel nut covers. i was thinking about getting a set from the bay to cover my somewhat rusty alloy bolts.

    the thing is, would they be likely to rust onto the bolt, in which case unscrewing the wheel botls would be a physical nightmare! any recommendations would be cool

    i would say it be better to get some new bolts and be done with it as they are only about £1 each.

    well i was thinking along the lines of theses
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BMW-E30-E36-E4...item3efb452c87

    new bolts could work, but i also have a security bolt on each wheel to prevent theft. it was on there when i got the car. id imagine they would cost a lot to replace too.

    good thought! I think a new set of bolts is in order.. or spray them.. just tape the thread and spray the heads...

    new bolts is probably best, and a quick spray of anti rust stuff if available.
