    Ok Im a cheapskate and when I noticed a set of monoblock copies from a SL320 on ebay with tyres I thought why not use them and get a new set of proper ones in the summer and use these for winter.

    As they came off a SL320 I thought no brainer BUT the bolts are the

    head - shaft - coller - thread type and are much too long for the wheels which have loads of in out movement

    Much Shorter generic ones dont seat correctly and I`m too "none tech" too know exactly what is needed but they need to be short.

    IF anyone can shed any light its much appreciated

    Speak to member Murray Systems (Chris), he will supply the correct bolts.
