You have to replace the old bolts with longer ones.. I suggest that you buy wheel studs the correct length and screw them in.. and replace them. Then you would need nuts for the studs.. readlly available at any parts store.. I suggest you buy the correct nuts for your wheels.. have some one who knows about alum wheels tell you which ones you need there are about 5 diffent types. or just buy longer bolts and any vw parts place on the web.
