Anyone know if those plastic lug nut covers can be found in red?

Nope. But I bet you can dye them. Go to the store, and get some red clothing dye (probably Rit brand), put a pot on the stove you don't care about, fill with water and add the dye.

Bring it to a soft boil, and put the caps in. Let em sit for about 20 mins (turn the heat down).

They should be red if not, well, let me know so I don't try it :).

I really don't think dye would work, but they could certainly be painted, using an enamel (NOT a lacquer) paint.

Hummm .... plastic at 212 deg F ... maybe, if its the right kind :D. I'd try one only as a test unit :D.

Paint sounds like a better alternative.
