Hi

Can anyone confirm the Bolt pattern for W245 B class, is it 5x112?

I'm looking to buy some alloy wheels but am not sure of the sizes.

Thanks

Yes, Stewart
5 x 112 is the right bolt pattern.
But don't forget to check the center bore 66.6 m.m , if it is a hubcentric wheel
also the offset (must clear those big calipers. )
et-46 I believe ,someone correct me if I'm wrong.

When you can ....the best way is to try the wheels on.

TIP: don't forget to check the lug stud length when changing wheels, if the wheels are thinner ...the bolt could enter the rear drum and tear up the parking brake...this happened to me on a 92 bmw 318i and its not fun.
wheels too thick you might need a longer lug.
the factory lug protrusion on my car was 7/8"

Interesting that you should talk about "stud length" and the possibility of damaging your inner hand brake.

We all use the same studs on the mags and the steelies and fortunately it hasn't been a problem........

Very good info to hold onto for future use.........

Yes, 1992 e36 Son's first car with removable wheel studs,changed wheels and didn't check stud length must have been no more that a 1/8 " too long the front was okay, hooked the PB shoe mounting springs in the back...took two seconds backing up the car, the brakes jammed ,the inner wheel protection plate was damaged.
Now I know, spin the wheel before you drop the jack.
