Hello, looking for feedback from those who have fitted aftermarket wheels and spacers.
I am thinking that the wheel bolts currently fitted are not long enough. From what I can see, there is only around 10mm of bite on them...

Anyone got the tool that presses in the bush in the rear knuckle to which the lower control arm attaches? I need to borrow one quick! I have been pressing in and out lots of bushes recently with mixed results but these look like they are beyond my basic technique and huge old press...
I bought an inexpensive W203 C220 (06 reg) a couple of years ago as I was in need of a car and not being able to find the right W204 car I wanted, this was a cheap solution. In obsidian, with black leather and Avantgarde spec I still think it looks classy.
Over the last couple of years...
My CLK has developed the squeaky rear end, so thought its time to replace the lower control arm to wheel carrier bushes.
Looked in my copy of EPC and it came up with A 220 352 02 27, went to confirm the Lemforder part number on ZF's Webcat and it stated '10747 01 no longer manufactured, use...
Anybody using one of these successfully?
I have a Hub 4 at the moment which works OK apart from the wifi sometimes struggling to cope with the endless tablets/phones that the kids and wife use.
BT sent me a new Smart Hub (Hub 6) but from a quick Google there seem to have been a steady...
Hi everyone to cut a long story short my wife changed her rear flat tyre and fitted the space saver but never fitted the shorter bolts. Damage has been done to the hub and I can only thread in four of the five wheel nuts. Does anyone know the tap/die size to try re tap thread. Thanks :fail
I started to strip my rear suspension to renew the tie bars and back plate when I discovered that I didn't have a socket to remove the nut holding the drive shaft to the rear hub.:fail
I have a 32mm socket, too small. my 34mm was too big. It looks like a splined nut. Where can I buy the correct...
Just ordered one for my W211 as the bearing was beginning to make quite a loud noise at speed over 30mph though when car jacked there is no noticeable movement of the tyre when shaken at with hands on 12/6 o'clock position. I did repack them about 3yrs ago so I'm guessing they have run of...
Genuine Mercedes 16" hub caps / trims with the chrome edges.
Getting hard to find and look awesome when fitted.
Part number: 1404010024
Not perfect but in original condition as shown in the pictures:
There's a set on eBay for £80 in a bit better condition, so i'll...
I have been getting a suspension 'clunk' for a while on the nearside. Jacked it up today and found play at the Hub Carrier swivel joint where it is bolted to the Spring Control Arm (lower wishbone). It looks to me as though the swivel is part of the Hub Carrier and to get a new swivel means a...
Anyone know where I can get some replacement hub caps at a reasonable price?
The ones I need are the classic roadster design in blue.
Also, is it normal for these to fail after only 3 years? One of the front ones is almost totally white now.

I have a set of genuine AMG alloys for sale. They are the 19" 5 double spoke wheels which are an option on the W205 C63 and standard, I think, on the C63S. Not sure if they'll fit other W205 C class models. The rim widths are 8.5 and 9.5 with offsets of 38 and 56.
The wheels have never been...
Will fit various models, W219 CLS, W212 S class, W216 CL, W211 E class, M class to name but a few.
(Will fit rear of the above vehicles, not sure about the front)
Do your own research for your own vehicle.

Hi. I've just bought some wheels for my w164 ml which came off another ml of the same year. But for some reason the hub on my car doesn't reach the centre bore of my wheel. I'm assuming you should probably have a good 5mm inside to take the weight of the car.
Can I cure this with hubcentric...
Put the car in for a wheel bearing today, the call came back that the drive shaft is seized in the hub... And Merc want £1500 for these parts :O
Can anyone advise:
- good places to source used parts (no joy on eBay)
- what the correct part is for a 2004 car as I understand they are...
