Euro 380SEL 15" chrome wheels - ForcedInduction - 05-14-2009

Got them for $40 at the 2:1 sale today, free sun rotted snow tires. Big Grin
   

I also got 2 euro triangle clips, two-tone horn switch and a euro headlight vacuum switch.


Question: Will the 14" bunt wheel lug bolts work with these or do I need new? I could only find 8 with this set.

Should bolt right up as long as its not a cone.

Looks like its no after all. This is one of my 300's bunt bolts compared to the ones I found with the 380SEL.

Let me dig around and see if I can find my stash.

Word of advise, try not to use the lug bolts on the right (the longer one) There is an updated bolt now that does not have that space from the head to the part that contacts the rim. Reason being is when the bolt has been on the car for a while the space on that bolt acts like a torque stick and shakes when you try to remove it with an impact and they will snap off. This now requires you to drill out the bolt, Big mess and not a lot of fun to do.

Thats exactly why I have the short style on my 240's wheels. Smile
I wouldn't use these lugs anyways because of the rust.

will a deep socket fit into the bolt hole if you use the shorts?

Yes.
