Chrome Alloy Wheel Lock Nuts
Yeah just pull the wheels off today to do some work on the car, and noticed that one of the lock nuts for the wheel has the chrome peeling off it, and corrosion is starting to build on them. must say i'm not to happy about it as i though they should be of better quality than that, especially for XR alloy wheel.
My wheels are the 15inch x 7, of the EF XR6/8.
Just curious whether anyone has encountereed this problem.
I'm wondering maybe i got jibbed on the lock nuts. If i didn't get jibbed then is there an aftermarket genuine high quality lock nut that i can get to replace these dodgy ones.
