and to get you going, you could pull a lug from other axles, and drive with 4 on every wheel...

85 mercedes 300sd

I already did that trick last night. There was a vibration and I began to believe I had a cv joint going out, then it got so bad I thought a tire was coming apart, so I got off and I was down to 2 very loose lugs on the rr. It seems this car (which I just got into service a couple of months ago has a beautiful jack and spare but a Chebby lug wrench!

I eventually borrowed a socket and ratchet from a generous man driving a ford diesel truck towing a 42' travel trailer!

I felt like a real dummy without a proper lug wrench!

I'd give you the ones in my trunk, but I'm not in Michigan anymore... Too bad Roy is on the other side of the state!

$20 apiece? Really? Why on earth would they be that expensive? Go to a junkyard, they're probably about 50 cents apiece.

I agree but he's far from home with no knowledge of local junkyards ( I assume) and spotting an SD is not that difficult.

Indeed I guess they may even cost less than twenty dollars a piece.

Maybe they are worth $20 each if it only takes two to hold your tire on your car.
Were they all next to each other ? Or spread out ?

... most tire stores seem to have MB lugs on their shelf. I know costco has them.
