    Now need to black anodise the wheel nuts.........

    I know, don't shoot me down, it just crossed my mind when I saw them fitted.......

    Regardless, they look good, look to be a nice refurb.

    They look like new. What sort of price were they for each wheel? I have 5 original Marina alloys that need doing, was going to do them myself but as far as I have got is having the tyres removed when I had new ones on my van.

    I've been trying to find black wheel nuts, none yet, or stainless with at least aren't chrome. I may well try spraying my old set black, I know it'll come off first use of the wheel brace but then I can touch up!

    Otherwise, yes next option was to try and get the new chrome ones anodised.

    There were Ā£50 each, blasted, checked for cracks and damage, tidied up, then powder coated. Tyres are Falcon's Ā£45 each. Slightly annoying that their wheel balancer wouldn't do 13" wheels!

    Can chrome wheel nuts be anodised, or do I need to start with plain steel?

    Found these at Canley Classics, pricey though, and not responding to emails about them.
