Need longer wheel bolts

Want to stick some 10mm spacers on the back of the e90, can anyone recommend a decent supplier?

Got mine from here:

http://www.performancealloys.com/#

Click on 'Wheel Nuts and Bolts'. But unless you know exactly what you're doing, best phone and ask their advice. There are a lot of variations in bolt types, threads, finishes, etc.

The specs you're going to need for the 10mm spacers are 12x1.5x40mm conical bolts, hopefully that'll help you a little!

Thanks this was a big help. Another question i need to ask, I put 20mm rear spacers on the rear and have ordered the correct locking nuts but can i stick the 2 remaining extended nuts on the fronts (no spacers)?.

Otherwise i will have a locking nut key for the fronts and a locking nut key for the rears.

The bolts are 12x1.5 60 degree 42mm long.

Hope i've not confused anyone lol

You could try it, but if you're running with no spacers at all on the front, I suspect the locking bolts will be too long and may foul on the hub behind the disc.

I will try and see how i get on. Hopefully they do or i might have to look at getting some spacers for the front. Dont like the idea of having two seperate locking keys.

OP - any reputable seller will sell the bolts with the spacers as they are a must have.

I got a 12mm Eibach set with bolts from Teddy at SSDD he does all combos of bolts / locks with his spacers.

Then my 10mm ones from BMS also came with a full set of bolts by default.

Is it really an issue having 2 keys?? How often do you take your wheels off? every 20 minutes?

I have two keys with my winter setup as then I run 10mm spacers on the rear only, so i use longer ones on the rear only.

But summers are 10mm all round, so only 1 key then

No probs.
