Do You Need Mercedes W205 Extended Wheel Bolts?
Any time you run W205 wheel spacers, you need longer lug bolts. If you have installed a wheel with a spacer using OEM lug bolts, don’t be fooled by the fact that visually the wheel is securely fastened. Actually, the thread of stock bolts is enough for fastening the stock wheels, when adding a Mercedes spacer, the thread won’t be enough anymore. When your Mercedes-Benz C200 is loaded to capacity, an emergency maneuver performed at high speed may lead to a bolt failure. Giving an example, if your stock bolt’s length is 27mm, and you have installed 12mm wheel spacers, then 39mm lug bolts will be required.
