I've heard of people going into a cold sweat when they learn the price of spares but I've never heard of it making their nuts swell up. I expect you can get some cream for them.

There are certain factors that contribute to lug nut swelling which are unfortunately unavoidable. Depending on the material that the lug nut is made of, certain lug nuts are more susceptible to swelling than others. Here are the main factors that contribute to lug nut swelling that you should know about:

Outside temperature Heat from the tires Moisture Corrosion Material of the lug nut
Some manufacturers cut corners in the design and engineering process to cut down on manufacturing costs of certain vehicles. These sub-par materials are prone to swelling, which can present an issue usually around the time of tire servicing or brake servicing when the wheels need to be removed.
