What wheel bolts to use?

Had these knocking about and looks like I'm not going to get my others read in time. I've just had a test fit and with the standard bolts it doesn't seem to bite enough...if that makes sense. Seems like it's only 3/4 way

I give up trying post images, any help guys and I can post a pic of the wheels.

They're like these 273205424529 ebay

It's a bit awkward fitting W211 wheels to earlier models because of the wheel bolts. They are M14x1.5 with a R14 ball seat rather than the M12x1.5 R12 ball seat on the 190e. What you need are conversion bolts that have the M12 thread with the R14 ball seat.

With the right search going you can find them on ebay with various lengths too, i've no idea what other people do that put the M14 wheels on 190e's they probably just use either normal tuner style taper seated bolts ( yuk ) or bang them up with the standard 190e bolts but i can't say i'd be comfortable doing that on my motor.
