Default Rust on lug nuts

Any ideas on taking off and preventing newly formed rust on lug nuts.

I'd just replace them with a new set of lug nuts if it bothers you...

That rust might just be from the impact wrench socket that put the nuts on the car and it may just polish right off. If the nuts themselves have been marred and are rusting. You can try naval jelly but it will likely return. If its that bad, replacement is probably your best bet.
