    Hi guys,

    I have had my Audi S5 for over a year now. Its a 08 model and I absolutely love the car!

    I just purchased a set of genuine RS5 Rotor wheels to fit to the car. I am told that the original Audi Wheel Bolts/Nuts will be fine to use.

    However I am not sure this is the case for me. I did not notice when I purchased the car but there are actually spaces in the wheels. I have a space saver wheel in the boot and when I had a puncture a few months back we were unable to fit spare wheel without using the spacer as the wheel bolts were too long (the spacer looked as though it was stuck to the original wheel so the AA person had to really knock the spacer off!).

    I am guessing the wheel bolts are probably not the original ones and are longer to accomodate for the spacers, could anybody advise me? Is there any way I can check if they are original wheel bolts/nuts?

    And does anyone have any idea where I can get replacement bolts that are good quality? I know Audi will probably charge a fortune but at the same time bolts are vital so they need to be OEM strength and quality.

    Thanks.

    Get a set of wheel bolts off a 08+ A5 / s5 from your local car breakers, or try ebay.

    Thanks for your help and responses guys. I managed to get a set of Wheel Bolts/Nuts from Motorist Discount Centre. I was going to get them from Euro Car parts but got them for half the price from Motorist Discount Centre (and quarter the price of Audi themselves!).

    They are M14 x 1.5 and 17mm hex head. However they are 28mm length. OEM are 27mm length from what I can tell. I have been told 1mm of extra length should make no difference, is anyone able to confirm that for me? I don't want the wheels to be loose on the car!!!

    And the person before me fitted spacers on the original wheels so I could have used the original wheel bolts, but they are 15mm spacers front and back and with original RS5 wheels its already 7mm difference (they are et26 and original s5 wheels are et 33) so I think they would stick out way too much and rub...

    1mm difference is ok. just make sure they're torqued correctly to 120nm or 88 lb ft.
