For Mercedes wheels that originally had 12mm lug holes
Our custom closed end lug nuts feature the same R12 seat profile as the 17mm headed open end nuts, but feature a 19mm closed end with a satin stainless cap. They are designed for use with Mercedes wheels that originally used an R12 seat lug bolt. However, these have been specifically designed for use in combination with the Vanagon’s 14x1.5 studs. These lugs have a 19mm hex head for use in wheels where the lug nut is exposed and looks are important. Can be used in combination with the Front Conversion Studs on a 2wd to allow the use of lug nuts on all four corners.
When the original Vanagon large ball (R14) seat steel wheel lug nuts are used on the Mercedes wheels that were designed for the R12 seat lugs, they do not make full contact with the lug seat. This can result in a loss of clamping pressure and the lugs can loosen up over time. Having the lug seat matched correctly to the wheel is essential to having a safe wheel installation.
If you need help determining which type of lug seat your wheels have, please contact us.
