This might be a little boring but... does anyone use wheel nut covers?
My alloys are black and they just dont seem to pop with the silver (slightly rusting ) bolts..
I had them on my golf in black, but the dis coloured and I lost a couple too.
Is there a standard I'm unaware of for bolt covers?...

I don't think there is a standard but price and quality are variuable. A set of chromed ones can be had for anywhere between £10 and £20. Also awailable in black, alloy effect and colours. some come with 4 special covers to fit the locking bolts which is useful. Lots of choice on Amazon.

The only standard I'm aware of is that around here if you park in a multi-storey car park you'll lose any wheelnut covers - and also any fancy tyre valve caps - regardless of make, brand, manufacturer or size, in very short order. :mad:

Hi Stu,I’ve got silver plastic but covers on the titanium rotors on my RS. Would’ve thought that yours should have the same,or possibly black in your case,to match your alloys🤔 There’s a plastic “grab” type tool in my toolkit to pull them off with for tyre changing/servicing.

When we got ours it was missing the covers, if there even was any in the first place. Luckily I had removed the VW ones from our previous car to add colour coded ones that went with the car. So I found them in the garage and bunged them on. The locker didn’t fit though.
