I have a 2013 GLK 250 Diesel that I took to garage to rotate tires. I was told I needed to replace lug nuts due to some expanded. Shop refused to rotate. I never head of such a a thing. Has anyone ever heard of this happening?

That is interesting. Personally, never heard of lug nuts "expanding"

Can you / they (the alignment shop) elaborate on this "lug expansion" issue?
I'm just thinking aloud here, but they would have had to remove them (the lugs) to see or be aware of this issue, and then re-install them w/o rotating/servicing your tires?

EDIT:
on a side note, all the lugs or just a few? any photos?

Sounds like complete BS to me, never heard ANYTHING like this, ever... get a different tire shop

better yet, find a good MB indi you can trust, then all the BS goes away...
