XD Center Cap Bolts Rusting
 
I had my XD Rockstars installed around 3 weeks ago, and the other day I noticed that the heads of the 5 socket head screws that hold the centers caps on the wheels are rusted.

So I guess my question is twofold. First, is this common? And second, does any body know the bolt dimensions so I can order some stainless steel replacements?

ones i have are stainless that come with mine.. but just take them to your closest place that sell bolts and they can just match it up..

Odd that yours are SS. I will fire off an email on Monday to the manufacturer to see what material they are supposed to be.

I have had mine kmc monsters for 8 months. No rust. Factory bolts too.

Here you can see the 4 bolts on the spare are rusted, and the silver of the mock bolts.

Kmc responded and said they had a bad batch of bolts come through and are shipping me replacements.

Fast response from customer service!
