Help! Wheel bolt length and seating shape for GLE 450

Hi Guys

I have a 2016 GLE 450 Coupe with standard 21" wheels

I am trying to find out the wheel bolt length and also the seating shape (cone or tapered). If any of you have taken the wheels off and know the information, please let me know. Thank you in advance!!

sorry. My fault. Cone/tapered is the same. Round/Ball is the other seating type. Ours is ball/round seat. Google Ball Seat wheel bolt and Taper Seat Wheel Bolts, you will see.

Heck, I thought you were talking about the seats inside the car. I know NOTHING about wheels and rims. Thats why I'm so scared to buy some aftermarket wheels even though I want some.

ha ha. it is actually not as complicated as you think. As long as you buy from reputable companies, they will also help you figure out the perfect wheels.
But I think the 21" AMG wheels that come with the car are already pretty nice.
