Wheel nuts the same on alloys and steels?
« on: 12 January 2019, 12:13 PM »
Hey guys,
Quick question, I'm moving from 14 inch steels to 14 inch bundt type alloys. Are the wheel nuts the same or do I need the longer 40mm ish long type?
Many thanks,

rumb

Hi
Always nice to see another UK enthusiast. Where about are you located?
I bought 20 new wheel bolts in 2011, and they were inexpensive £57 directly from MB. The part number is: MA 126 401 06 70.
