F.S. - ML GL R Class Longer 18" - 20" Wheel Lugs Bolts

Most Mercedes wheel lugs/bolts are 12mm in diameter. But ML, GL and R Class vehicles use larger 14mm diameter lugs/bolts. That's the diameter of my lugs/bolts.

Since the same diameter lugs/bolts are used on some BMWs and VWs, you may find some who are trying to sell you their lugs/bolts for your Mercedes. But don't fall prey because the seats are different. Instead of a cone seat [which is used on BMWs and VWs], you need lugs/bolts with ball seats. My lugs/bolts have ball seats.

Finally, 18"-20" OEM or AMG wheels need longer lugs/bolts [that are approximately 70mm (2.62 inches)] in length because of the greater offset. That's the length of my lugs/bolts.

So if you own a Mercedes-Benz ML Class SUV w/factory 16" or 17" alloy wheels and are looking to upgrade to OEM or AMG 18"-20" wheels, you're going to have to upgrade your wheel lugs/bolts as well.

Or maybe your ML, GL, or R Class vehicle already came with 18" or larger alloys and you can use a couple of spare, reasonably priced wheel lugs/bolts.

Regardless, rarely do these lugs/bolts become available in the secondary market thus relegating you to either: pay nearly $8 per lug/bolt through your local Mercedes dealership; or, purchase NON-OEM lugs/bolts of questionable quality.

Well, I've got 13 of these slightly used genuine OEM lugs/bolts [I understand the picture only shows 5], and I'm only asking $2.50/each. Or if you take all 13, I'll drop the cost to only $25.00!

Thanks for looking and I hope these lugs/bolts work for you!
