My lug nuts are totally rusted so I was wondering if someone could point the way where to buy some nice "rust-proof" replacement lug nuts. Maybe a set of gunmetal color?? Just want to get rid of those nasty rusted one on there now.

You can buy the lug bolts from the dealer parts counter. They come with a corrosion-resistant finish, but that doesn't mean corrosion-proof over time. If you want to give them an extra dose of protection, get some silver spray paint (or other color, perhaps to match your wheels if they're black or gunmetal?) and spray a couple of coats. Just be sure to mask off the ball seat and threads before you do so. And be aware that going this route will mean that you'll have to touch up the lug bolts occasionally, since any socket used to spin them out to remove the wheel will likely scratch them.

You could look for some plastic covers for the bolts, i have seen them in different colours, but please..........................................not the shiny chrome one's
:td: I cleaned mine up on a wire wheel and painted them, but then i am tight!
