    its not just the bolt length, you need to check the taper/ angle of the head, they may (?) have made it standard now but I know previously they were different for alloy and steel wheels, and if you used bolts for steel wheels it could damage alloys.

    I know it's all very subjective fella. But I've run 19" Snowflakes and 16" Steels on my 3.2 Gsi using the same bolts. Right or wrong I don't know, but they fitted perfectly each time.
