-dirty stains on the alloys though my watchmen cleans the car everyday

guys please help me to get good quality chrome nuts in Chennai.
and is there any cleaning liquid specially for alloys to remove stains ??

I have the same problem with my wheel nuts!! They started rusting within 3 weeks!! I'd bought them from Hot Tracks here in Bangalore. I was told that these were "high-quality, premium wheel nuts, and that they don't stock local ones"!! If this is the high-quality stuff, then I should probably be thankful he doesn't have the low-quality....probably my wheels would come off then!!

Only thing is that I had to pay Rs.100 each for these Hi-Join wheel nuts.....day-light robbery!

i have suffered similarly and can suggest the following :
rotate your tires and get the nuts painted
i paid around 1700+ for 16 stainless steel nuts which rusted within a month.
i stayed patient and took inputs from a few members on T-Bhp and the fuel bunker dude who checks my tire pressure on a bi-weekly basis.
seems to be working but i guess a fresh coat of paint every 6 months on the nuts work fine..

Really Nice. Could you give the price for the tyres and alloys. And also the details of the alloys?
