For 10mm spacers you will require extended 35mm bolts. You wont be able to re use your locking bolts. Best place to buy new bolts and spacers is eBay.

Chris, standard OEM nuts are 25mm (threaded part), so as Nick has stated you'll need 35mm nuts.

The best place IMO for all you need (Spacers,lockers and nuts) is Grayston engineering:

http://www.graystonengineering.com/wheelnutmenu.htm

If you're in any way unsure of what you need, give them a call, they're really friendly and helpful

I use their lockers as well as McGards.

Alternatively, ring Teddy SSDD (07920 575 052):

and Teddy will sort out all you need.

Are the bolts on the E92 different to the E90? I'm sure mine were 28mm standard, confirmed by the place I bought my extended bolts from. I've got 42mm bolts coming to go with my 15mm spacers.

I don't think the bolts differ from E90-E92, but my bolts (E92) are 25mm.

Can't argue with that - my info came from one of the site sponsors:

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=555258

And, as I said, confirmed by the people I bought the spacers and longer bolts from.
