Preferred cone seat lug bolts?

I searched and haven't seen many discussions on lug bolts for aftermarket wheels. Not interested in a stud conversion at the moment.

So what do you guys recommend? (only interested in black)



Found some FK extended lug bolts that seem promising. Although unsure which mm shank to go with.

Assuming you're not using spacers, that is the size of an OEM bolt, and most wheels would have a similar depth as far as the seat goes to your factory wheels. Therefore, you don't want to use longer or shorter bolts, unless the manufacturer of the wheels specifies this, or you are using spacers.

Thanks guys. No spacers and the OEM ones fit fine so I'll go with the 26mm.
