    There was a thread earlier this week, apparantly they are different and you do need alloy wheel ones, I thought a bolt was a bolt!

    Alloy wheel bolts are have a different taper shape to spread the pressure of the bolt. Steel wheels are stronger at the bolt holes and do not require the load to be spread as much
