Longer wheel nuts

I have stuck some 18" multi spoke CLK alloys on to my R170. The factory wheel nuts go into the wheel hub just...and no more. I definately need longer wheel nuts.

Can anyone tell me what the factory spec of the nut length is please so I can work out what length I need to get?

I am guessing as standard they are 40mm but I want to be sure.

The car is in the body shop right now so I am unable to undo a nut to measure.
