    I have some 16" Toliman wheels and I need to find out the radius of the ball seat so I can buy some new bolts to the correct specification.

    Actually I saw that page before I posted. Where does it say to use bolt pack 3?

    And, I'm sceptical about what they say because I've been trying to find out the answer for weeks. Many shops say use 12mm radius, some (like this) say 14mm. Yesterday, one got back to me and said use 13mm radius. :confused:

    The merc dealer won't tell me (probably because they don't know).

    What can I do?:dk:

    See the green accessories tab on that link. Would go with what alloywheelsdirect say. BTW bolt pack 3 is when fitting them to the W211, was just giving you the spec of the radius seat type.

    You need bolt pack 4: http://www.alloywheelsdirect.net/option/bolt_packs
