I'm thinking Lowe's should start being a sponsor here. First Dedion Tube covers and now lug nut covers.

Seriously - those look great and are a great idea! I've been trying to think of some sort of solution. (thought of stealing my chrome bolts off my Mercedes before I sell it)

A little bit of sanding and you can paint them whatever color you want. These look like an awesome find! Thanks

i like the the colored ones on ebay, red white blue black yellow or gray, they fit already, no cutting necessary, the color wont scratch off like paint. and their only $20.

Those are nice too! I like the color choice. It's killing me - I've seen them somewhere before. Hardware store too? (I know they have them on eBay, but I've seen them somewhere else ) Driving me nuts as I can't remember where...
