    Default Missing Wheel nuts?

    I was just looking at my alloys today and noticed that there is a chrome cap missing on each wheel, i know its the locking nut that has no cap but i was just wondering are they supposed to be "capless" or can u get caps for them, just looks a bit weird havin 4 chrome caps and then one that just looks black and dirty lol
    i looked on ebay but didnt see anything

    but to be fair if people can clarly see that one nut is a locking one then hopfully they will not try to nick them or need to take off other wheel nut covers to see either

    Omegas have similar caps to Vectras, and they had a special one for the locking wheel nut, which was round inside but still hexagonal on the outside. I reckon one of those would fit, subject to it being the right internal diameter.
