Wheel Bolt Stud Alignment aka lugbolt hangers

Fitted winter wheels today, real struggle to get the front wheels back on and aligned with the bolt holes. Came across a Wheel Bolt Stud Alignment Tool, exactly what I need.

I think the wheel bolts are M12 1.5 although this seller is warning that later BMW are M14.

Does anyone know the wheel bolt size for a F10 / F11 ?

Yes, the F10/11 have M14 wheel bolts.

Thanks for that have ordered a couple of Aluminium ones from the states as they looked the best bet not to damage the wheel.
