Default steel to alloy wheels

Depends on the shape of the seat (area where the bolt touches the rim)
Steel rims are, IME, likely to use conical while for instance Peugeot original alloys use (always?) a flat seat. You need the correct seat for the alloy rims in question.

Conical (might actually have differing tapers too...)


Spherical, might possibly have different radius...

Flat

If they are peugeot or citroen original alloys you need the correct peugeot/citroen bolts if aftermarket your steel bolts will do providing they are long enough

This is the type of alloy wheel I just got, so I'm guessing I need oem Peugeot bolts
