    AMG's on a B5

    Ok guys, just a quickie

    New 18" AMGs are getting powdercoated as we speak, but im wondering, Do I need new bolts? The wheels have already been milled to M14 from M12 and have spigot rings, but wondering if the OEM Audi bolts are 1: Long Enough or 2: will the head fit down the hole with the socket?

    Anyone fitted original mercs to their B5? anything left to look out for?

    Cheers

    I had new bolts to fit Merc wheels to my b5, try your local wheel/tyre centre for advice.

    Nasty? Just normal 5 spokes lol.

    They look good. With a bit of a drop they`ll look better. The fronts always stick out more. They did on my B7 wheels which are et42.

    Can you use generic 5mm slip on spacers with these cars even though they run bolts rather than studs?

    I wouldnt...My wheel fell off on the n/s/f because it only had about 3mm of thread holding it on! You need longer bolts to fit any kind of spacer.

    I'm running 40mm bolts with a 5mm spacer washer at the head end so that I can fit spacers at a later date if I want to... Lol
