Question Wheel Nuts

Hi
If I increase from 16 to 17 inch FIAT rims can I use my existing wheel nuts.
I've seen some 17's on ebay which I like but they don't come with wheel nuts.

Cheers

Neil

Re: Wheel Nuts

My new wheels came with bolts, that were longer ( or were they shorter??......can remember now, but they were different), that might just be to do with the dimensions of the wheel though
