Can't fit pre 211 without custom bolts
Just a quick FYI, while the bolt pattern for the wheels will fit the pre-211 chassis, they were designed for the 14M lugs with the 14M ball seat, which (stupidly in my opinion) is NOT compatible with the 12M ball seat. In other words, while you can find lug bolts of the proper length, since they will have the 12M ball seat they won't properly fit these newer wheels. If you want to mount these on an older 12M benz product you'll have to get custom bolts with the 12M thread but a 14M ball seat, another thread indicated they were about $15 per bolt.
It's exceedingly dumb, thanks Mercedes. [:(!]
