Exclamation Center locking nuts on Porsche C-GT

Hi. I have done quite a bit of research now, but still have not been able to figure the answer to this question out. I was wondering if you people might help me.

My question is: why are the center lock nuts on the Carrera GT red on one side and blue on the other side? And is there any reason that they could not all just be painted the same color eg. black or silver or grey.

Thanks in advance.

It is a safety feature designed to tighten to prevent loosening while the wheel is in motion. Therefore you cannot interchange from side to side. Regards.
