Wobbly bolts for standard bolts?

Can I use wobbly bolts as standard bolts.

My old alloy wheels were 4x100 PCD so I had them on with wobbly bolts.... perfect

Anyway changed my wheels again and this time my wheels are 4x98 PCD again. Can I just use my wobbly bolts?

Secondly. If my wheels offset was +5mm to which my car required e.g car takes offsets between 35mm - 45mm but the wheels bought were 50mm, would fitting a 5mm spacer counter act this and make the wheels ok, i.e. push the wheels out 5mm an stop them rubbing the inside of the arch? This is a question for a friend that I knew would be answered here correctly

Help lol

well for the cost of wheel bolts i would just get 'normal' ones
however once torqued into place then i assume they will sit in the fine with no movement,but a pain when changing a wheel in the rain

I aint clued up on this kinda stuff, but i'll say what i think is right? lol if that made any sense.. Ok, i think it will stop the rubbing if it is an MK2 as they have bigger arches than the MK1 but with a heavy load, streeing wheel on full lock, theres a good chance he will get rubbin if so the arches will need a little work on them, im only guessing really though if your patient im sure someone will answer your question..
