Hi there, just noticed that one of the locking wheel nuts is starting to rust, whilst the other 3 locking nuts are strangely turning a peculiar off white colour.
All of the ordinary nuts are as good as new.
Any one experiencing this.
Any ideas on resorting the chrome, and what can I use to protect them -polish etc.
Cheers.

Seems a common problem. Try spraying them with some WD-40 now & again to keep the rust at bay!
