Hi Fig,

These are not suitable for Gelandewagen in my opinion.

I bought a set from 4x4Direct for my 460 but then found that the standard G bolts do not fit inside the mounting holes. The head diameter of the standard bolts for steel wheels exceeds the diameter of the holes provided in the spacer.

These spacers also convert the the hub from wheel bolts to studs. The new nuts provided are undersized in terms of bearing surface and in general did not inspire confidence by the look of them for heavy use as on a Gwagon.

I returned the spacers and got a refund. The dealer said 'these are for the newer version of the G-Class with mags'. I do not believe that one bit, and would recommend to rather steer clear.

I have mags and also tried to fit these but the same situation as Van said.

If you want spacers, contact Anton @ Osrek Engineering in Silverton. He made them for the G wagon based gun platform thing that Armscor made (Danie, help, what is its name???)

Maugene Engineering Services 012 804 1170 in Silverton also has the details of the W460's on file. I got a set from them.
