    Hi

    I have a Sprinter 2007 209cdi 88hp.

    It came with alloys on when i bought it but after a flat yesterday I discovered the spare steel rim wont fit because of the alloy bolts, so i went to Merc and bought some sprinter wheel bolts and they are too long. When questioned back at Merc they said merc have no other options as thats all merc do.

    So why wont my steel rim fit with merc wheel bolts please?

    Steel rim is 5 1/2 Jx16 ET51

    Tyvm.

    I've also got a set of shorter bolts for the space-saver; they're in a little plastic "bin" with the jack in a tray that sits in the wheel:
