I contacted an internet aftermarket wheel/tire dealer other than Tirerack about a new set of 18x8.5 Fittipaldi Formula wheels for my E430. They state that the model I wanted is only available for the W220 and W140 S-Class and not the W210 E-Class becuase the S-Class uses 14MM wheel bolts and and E-Class uses 12MM wheel bolts and the bolt holes will be too big to fit properly on the E-Class. Is this correct? Does S-Class wheels have larger diameter bolts which would cause a fitment problem when used with the E-Class? Thanks.

I am in the similar predicatment, because i tried fitting an S class (1992 400SE) wheels on my 1987 300e; the wheels fitted okay but would not turn because the lug nut went in too far and was hitting the calipers. Did not know this at the time util i called my local my local MB dealer and they said i need to use the right size lug nuts to avoid hitting the calipers. My question to all our and available experts and Luke is how to determine the right size lug nuts to use or to forget the idea completely. Please email me donalarms@yahoo.com directly.
Thanks.

To be more technically correct they are lug bolts. Can't you grind off the ends of the bolts if they are too long?
