can I use the std T4 bolts as I did with the old 17" Audi sport alloys or are the Merc wheels diferent
ok ta for the advice, have you bought new bolts ?, if so where would I goMaybe it took 8 hours as the only people who would know are those that have fitted both Audi and Mercedes wheels ?
I Just swapped from Audi to Merc, and the bolts did not fit properly.
They might have held the wheel on, but they don't seat as they are supposed to.
my merc wheels fitted on fine with the t4 bolts. make sure you have spigot rings on them - they do make a massive difference by reducing the risk of off centre wheel and vibration.
They may hold the wheel on, but they are not the correct fitting, have a look at the shape of the seat the bolt fits into, and the shape of the bolt.
I planned to fit them with my old bolts, but was advised against it by someone (unlike me) who knows what they are talking about.
