You don't want to use the original ones unless the the sleeve length of the bolts are the same on the the alloys as on your original rims. Some of them hace a flange only (where the bolt actually makes contact with the wheel) and others have a sleeve with a washer if the allos are mede for a universal fit. Always watch the pitch of the thread and be sure not to cross thread them. Remember to tighten them in a star pattern or they could wobble.
