I just bought some rims (like the first four pictures on this link http://members.tripod.com/~breastroker/MB_M100_15Wheels.html) for my 78 300d MB. The car currently has the stock rims with hub caps. I went to change the wheels last night and found that the lugnuts were not long enough and barely went in to secure the wheel to the hub.

Does anyone know how or if this process can work? Can I get longer nuts for these bundt wheels? Anyone with some experience with this?

Lug Bolts

Yes, as you've noticed, the alloy rims take somewhat longer lug bolts than the steel rims.
