    There seems to be much dissatisfaction with Mercedes oem bolts and locking bolts, so we’ve decided to offer our RAD bolts as a New Year Special!

    There seem to be various problems with Mercedes bolts: corrosion issues, sticking bolts, shearing heads.

    We specialise in selling only genuine oem wheels, but when it comes to bolts, oem are not good enough, so we buy from a company called RAD in Germany.

    RAD bolt/locking bolt specification:
    Manufactured to DIN EN ISO 898
    Strength Class 10.9
    Dacromet 500A coating – 240 hour salt spray test resistance guaranteed
    Wheelgun proof - even the locking bolts can withstand 400Nm
    Every single bolt is tested and logged on a PACE test machine

    Mercedes bolts are zinc plated and last around 20 hours in the ‘salt spray test’, a laboratory test where metal components are sprayed with a corrosive agent and inspected for corrosion at various time intervals. The 20 hours that Mercedes bolts last is roughly equivalent to a year’s use.
    The RAD bolts are guaranteed to 240-500 hours, so at least 12 years equivalent.

    There are broadly 4 sizes of Mercedes wheelbolt, below are the sizes, art numbers and prices from Mercedes:
