Hi guys,

I have a quick question, I have w210 16" rims
and now I want to change to 18" Brabus rims.
Just want to know, do I have to buy new wheel nuts or I can use the same old one ....


Thanx

Hey, Chaulito, my guess is you'll have to change them. The 210 lug bolts are looooong and the Brabus wheels are very likely a thinner mounting area.

Depending upon the year for which the BB rims were made, you may also need the custom lug bolts that have the 14M ball seat on a 12M bolt. RAD of Germany makes them, Otisincla.com sells them in the states for a great price.

The only way to know about length is try one of yours in the BB; the only way to know about the ball seat is what year and model the BB's were designed for.

Good luck and enjoy the ride,
Greg
