Id have thought they wouldn't be long enough, As a Alloy wheel generally has a deeper ET

Also worth looking to see if the seat is tapered or conical.

the offset/Et doesn't make a difference to the length of bot required. The part of the wheel that bolts to the hub tends to be thicker on an alloy hence the longer bolt.
All my Vauxhalls managed to use the length bolts for ally & the steel spare :confused:
