Default Re: Wheel bolts

My alloys also used a bolt with 60 degree taper under the head, whilst the steel wheels use a bolt which is rounded under the head - you should check length AND fitment, although I'm sure it is the alloys that damage rather than the steel ones if you use the wrong type of bolt.
Also be aware that alloys might have spacers fitted to correct for offset, you should remove them with the wheel before fitting a steel spare.

But yes, if you have factory wheels and spare they will all be the same.

Can someone post the sizes? More than just longer/shorter would help. And the taper would be helpful. I just picked up some alloy wheels, need to get the bolts.

This just occurred to me. Nobody knows who might be changing the tire. Just knowing about this problem may not be enough.

Those who have alloy wheels and long lug bolts would be wise to include a large print warning about the bolts in with jack tools. Even better would be to cable tie a weatherproof warning to the spare tire wheel. I would thread the cable tie right through one of the lug holes. One would hope that roadside assistance would know about the difference, but it would be best not left to chance.

The spare is accessible enough that a laminated yellow or red note can be added without dropping the spare out of the holder.

It is important. How about posting the sizes/tapers of the various bolts. Thanks.
I currently have C&S rims with a Steel spare. I want to swap with Alloy and want to know what to look for in lug bolts.

It is in the MB manual for my Sprinter (UK) Is it not in the US manual?

Just checked a 2011 US manual, Page 232 shows the bolt difference.

ECU,
Did you just get the factory alloy rims with 5 lug bolts, or something else?
The longer lug bolts made specifically for the factory alloy rims may be quite different than what you
would need for aftermarket alloy wheels.

That is why just the pictures don't quite work for me. Currently, I have aftermarkets with a steel spare. I have appropriate lugs for this setup. But I picked up some alloys and would like to know if the aftermarket lugs would work or not with the factory wheels.
