    Standard bolts are radius and after market are tapered, be fine using what you have.

    Unless you're changing the offset (how far out the wheel is), which I would assume you're not if the Sline wheels are from an A3 and OEM, your bolts will be fine.

    If you were to add spacers to push the wheels out, giving a more aggressive stance, then you'd need longer bolts.
