Length of wheel bolt

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know how long a standard wheel bolt is that fits a BBS alloy wheel?


I'm after the measurement from the bottom of the cone to the end of the bolt.


Unfortunately I don't have the car with me to measure one and I'm looking to buy some new bolts which I understand are M12 1.5x but I don't know the tread size - according to ebay they do a 30mm or a 35mm.

I changed to studs, and nuts as I had issues with the bolt ends rusting and nearly damaging the thread on the hubs as they were wound out? this may be just a problem with cars which are left unused for a long time or wheels not being taken off much? worth putting some copper grease on the tips of the bolts.
