well i have compared alloy ones against the new wheels and they protrude the same on the new rims, so I have used them.

however, i have also compared steel bolt to alloy bolt and they have exaclty the same markings, are the same length, identical in every way.

will see how i get on when i fit the sxi rims to our lasses car tomorrow and pop into vauxhall and see if there are different bolts listed

just got a call back from vauxhall, only one bolt listed for corsas, be it alloys or steels.

weird,

but they advised if fitting After Market wheels then they might not have the insert fitted in the wheels as standard vauxhall alloys have then to use special alloy bolts :confused:

but lockers will be fitted to both cars, :thumbs_up:

I always use standards and 2 sets of locking nuts if my wheels are worth it.
