Our bolts/nuts seem to rust up more than I've seen elsewhere too. I think GM speced cheaper materials in some places. Probably a cheaper clear in our case. Factory rims usually aren't just polished, they've got a clear coat on them. Or it could be that people saw our Saturns as mostly non-special and ran them until they didn't.... lots of gas and go people out there.
