How do you make your Sprint wheel nuts presentable.

I typed Wheel Nut Caps into ebay and found hundreds of them, in all colours and finishes. For my 1850 Dolly with Sprint wheels the 17mm is the size. For my MGB I need the 19mm. Just measure the nuts across the faces with a caliper.

So it's 17mm, brilliant - try it and see what It's like.

Has anyone seen chrome wheel nuts on a Sprint? And what does it look like.

I often wonder if cavalier/astra push on bolt covers would work. (17mm) or were they 19mm?

I did try to have some re-anodised but the original coating was too good and would've dissolved the nut before the coating! Probably just end up painting them

Spikey !

Wheel nut covers.

Unfortunately only in chromed plastic, would have liked stainless steel or titanium.
