    Can I use stock lug nuts for after market wheels?

    I tried using the bolts set from Vorsteiner because it says it's specifically for :BMW, Tesla.

    For some reason my mechanic said I can only use the lug nuts on MS.

    You'll likely need new lug nuts (emphasis on nuts, what you have are wheel bolts, which aren't compatible with the Tesla). The OEM lug nuts are conical, but have a large shoulder, meaning they're too wide to fit in the openings on most after market wheels. Look for a bulge conical / tapered type nut, that are right length for your wheels, can be torqued to 130 ft/lb, and you should be good to go.
