Re: [T3] Wheel bolts and aftermarket wheels

The tire stores in the area seem uninterested in stocking bolts, I have been given the 
option of having studs installed, that will take another thread on the nut side of 
things. This surgery was quoted at $48, and I haven't bothered to search out a cheaper 
place because I'm unsure this is the option that I want to go with.

Also on eBay is this:

Which looks to be a longer bolt with 30mm shank [that's where the threads live, right?]. 
Any idea what is *too* long with these? I'd hate to foul up the workings of my rear 
brakes. 

Any reason why a stud/nut system would be superior to a bolt/hole arrangement?

Many thanks,
Curtis
