longer bolts? which ones?

I dont know alot about bolts except that I need some longer ones. preferably around 5mm longer than the standard bolts for a cinq as I use 5mm spacers.

I found this site :

http://www.trackstore.co.uk/wheelfix.html

which has loads of bolts at different lengths but i have no idea how to measure bolts and how the thread on a bolt is measure or the width of the bolt etc.

so can anyone with the knowhow tell me which bolts on that site will fit and cinq and be 5mm longer than the standard bolts.

the bolts have a code (eg. sb57) next to the spec of the bolts so could you post it plez! im sure ital make a few people happy!

I don't have a standard bolt to hand, but you need a 12mm x 1.25. That is the diameter of the bolt and the pitch of the thread.

For a standard wheel you need a fixed 60 degree taper. If you are using 100 mm PCD wheels you need the variable 60 degree taper.

The 'hex' is the head of the bolt, therefore 19 mm is the standard for a cento.

The length is the thread, not the head or the taper, so measure yours and add 5 mm.

Hope this helps

Cheers
