Hi
Alloys on my w124.
1 long wheelnut about 5 -6 turns to tighten
The other 4 about 1.5 turns to tighten.

Would that be right?

Just seems not much to tighten on the 4.:confused:

They should all be the same length. 1.5 turns sounds too little. The shaft should be 39mm long according to alloywheelsdirect.net

You need 6 turns for a thread to be at full strength.

Sounds like you are using 4 short bolts intended for the steel spare wheel...dangerous.
