Hi
is it possible to fit 5 spoke SL230 alloys onto my 1995 SL320 (r129)? The r129 wheel studs don't have a long enough enough thread (up the shank) and are possibly of a lesser diameter. Will r230 bolts do the job?
many thanks

R230 alloys

That is an alternative, and it is just possible to do that, I have already done the sums and TPI for them.
