    My covers for my nuts are manky due to using acidic cleaner in its early life and my mate come across these, not bad considering its about £10 for a can of paint

    they look like just some cheap plastic covered in a thin layer of paint.

      Thats the trouble with wheel acid, it buggers the paint on the stud covers. To be honest mate you can't beat elbow grease and hot soapy water. Its better for the wheels all round

          I did mine satin black for the same reason - bit of a rub down with sandpaper and a can of paint (which I already had) and bobs your uncle!

            Sorry to thread -hijak but does anyone know where I can get one of those wheel nut cover removal tools (shown on the link at top of thread)?
            Can't find one anywhere and having just put covers on that are half the common length it's almost impossible to get them off.
