    A3 8P wheel bolt measurements?

    Hi all,

    I've decided to put on a set of BBS VZ033/CO 18" wheels on my Sportback, and would like to find out if anyone knows the measurements of the stock wheel bolts. Will these work with the BBS CO's? I think they have 17mm heads, but are they 12 x 1.5 threads, and how long are the stock bolts?

    Thanks in advance for any advice

    Thanks! Are they 12 x 1.5 or 14 x 1.5 with 17mm heads?

    This might sound a bit obvious but it only takes a min to take one out and have a look!

    They are generic to all VAG cars though it seems. Every VAG car i've had uses the same bolts. Cant see why there would be a problem on the BBS wheels.

    Forged lightweight A3 wheel bolts

    Would anyone know of any aftermarket forged wheel bolts in the standard size for the A3?

    I know that Japanese tuners have a lot of forged wheel nuts, but have come up empty in my search for VAG forged replacement bolts. All I've found are H&R, not sure if these are forged, though.

    Any help would be appreciated.
