    The seat of the face is wrong. OEM are a ball seat, aftermarket wheels are a taper'd seat. Some people do use them but your not getting 100% surface contact so it's advisable to get the correct wheels bolts for the wheels.

    Aftermarket wheels are usually a 60 degree tapered hole.

    My BBS LM's came direct fit for Audi so they took the original radius seat wheel bolts.

    What do you mean 'came direct fit for Audi'?

    I don't think BBS LM's were ever a standard or optional extra alloy for Audi. If i remember rightly I think I possibly read somewhere once BBS alloys have the OE radius seat instead of aftermarket taper seat on most aftermarket alloys.

    Mine are BBS LM replicas and are Audi/VW specific fitment so you can use your original wheel bolts with them. I should have been more clear.

    Because the wheels are a popular Audi/VW fitment the wheel manufacturer drill and bore the wheels specifically for the car fitment. So you don't need any spigot rings and you can use the original bolts.
    Sorry i've just noticed its "locking wheel bolts" you are after. If your wheels are aftermarket then the majority of wheels are 60 degree taper so you'll need different locking wheel bolts. Mcgard do a very good range of lockers for pretty much any taper, thread diameter and length and they are insurance approved.
