Stainless Wheel Nuts

Post by haustrup » Mon Aug 12, 2013 6:53 pm

I would like to recommend William (Bill) Brighton, who make stainless steel wheel nuts for both the Wolfrace and the standard steel wheels.
I've bought a set for my steel wheels as the old chromed ones now were so rusty that the wheels had become discoloured.
The stainless nuts are very good quality and match perfect and Bill is very helpful.

Bills email is: brightoncc@hotmail.co.uk

Best wishes

seconded - and apologies for not posting Bill in here before. 8 Ball has been wearing stainless wheel nuts since we bought it and they still look as good as the day they arrived :-)

Are there any issues with galvanic corrosion between the steel stud and the stainless nut? I was thinking a set of these would look much better than my tatty old chromed ones.

phone Bill - remember if justifying the outlay against the cheapy sets on ebay that they will only last a couple of years if you're lucky.

Thanks for that feedback Jim. For info, current cost for 16 nuts / washers is £90 including p&p. And her indoors is asking what I want for a Christmas present .........

A fiver per nut AND washer, assuming £10 for postage (and they're heavy)...Not bad in my book.

That's the Christmas present sorted then!

I'd also like to give a big thumbs up to Bill. Just bought a set from him and they are superb! Worth every penny.
