12 x 1.5 with a 17mm hex head.
Standard length is 25/28mm depending on where it's measured from.

As long as you're NOT using spacers yes,if using spacers,bolts need to be as longer as the spacers are wide.

So a 10mm spacer,will need a 10mm longer bolt,this does apply to a 5mm spacer,DON'T make the mistake of fitting a 5mm spacer,without using a longer bolt.
Some do!
