tuner lug bolts for F10

i just received my Rohana RC10s but with different lug bolts (M12x1.5). can anybody confirm that our cars use M14x1.25? i don't see much of choices for spline lug bolts, trying to avoid ebay. wanted to find OEM quality black tuner lug bolts but no luck here. thanks in advance.

M14 * 1.25 is the factory spec.

Your oem lock bolt may not fit your aftermarket wheel, if that is the case, you will need something like a Rad lock.

Stock bolts are M14 x 1.25 on my 2012 535i f10 n55 with the sport and premium package that comes with the 19 inch rims.

Just got done adding some wheel spacers to the front and rear of it. As a result, I had to purchase longer wheel bolts to accomodate.

ECS has multi bolt lengths in black zinc just like the stock bolts. Make sure you choose the correct seat (conical seat or ball seat).

See if your stock lugs clear. I'm running forgestars that have narrow lug clearance but was able to use the stock bolts but had to use thin walled sockets.

Wheel locks might be a challenge for the narrow holes, so if you wanted to use a single tuner as a lock to slow down thieves, you can try these -
