The bolts you need are very likely available from your local MB dealer. Measure the length of the shaft portion of the bolts you presently use - from the end of the shoulder to the end of the threads. Stick your present bolts into the new rims and see how or if they go through the rim out the back. You need about 1/2" (13mm) of threads out the back, so see how much longer your bolts need to be to have 1/2" out the back. That will tell you what length is needed.

MB bolts can be found up to 40mm long at the dealer, aftermarket people sell them up to 50mm long. One caveat - if the bolts in the rear wheels are too long, they will hit the parking brake mechanism in there and will destroy it as they rotate.
