wheel nuts

Hi guys,

I have a quick question, I have w210 16" rims
and now I want to change to 18" Brabus rims.
Just want to know, do I have to buy new wheel nuts or I can use the same old one ....


Thanx

RE: wheel nuts

Hey, Chaulito, my guess is you'll have to change them. The 210 lug bolts are looooong and the Brabus wheels are very likely a thinner mounting area.

Depending upon the year for which the BB rims were made, you may also need the custom lug bolts that have the 14M ball seat on a 12M bolt. RAD of Germany makes them, Otisincla.com sells them in the states for a great price.

The only way to know about length is try one of yours in the BB; the only way to know about the ball seat is what year and model the BB's were designed for.

Good luck and enjoy the ride,
Greg
