    I have bought some new wheels, OEM Merc, to replace the horrible AMG replicas I have.

    Just come to fit them and the bolts are too short for the new wheels....

    What do I need to buy?

    Woe is me!

    Some standard MB alloy wheel bolts are needed.

    This page is your friend, contact them and ask them what you need for your exact wheels. Send them wheel part numbers if you can.

    Packs of Wheel Nuts and Wheel Bolts from Alloy Wheels Direct

    Genuine AMG wheels use 'cupped fitting' bolts whereas replicas and aftermarket wheels often use tapered fitting bolts so you may have needed new ones regardless of the length.

    Thanks for the fast replies gents.

    I will call them tomorrow.

    Would the dealer have the correct ones, or am I likely to get ripped off? Only because I drive past the dealer on the way home.

    Dealers charge a fortune in comparison in my experience.
