When it comes to 2023 Audi Q5 wheel bolts, the thread engagement length is critical. There is a golden rule: at the minimum, thread engagement length must be equal to or greater than the diameter of the fastener. In other words, if the bolt is M14x1.5 in size, the thread length must be at least 14mm. For instance, a standard thread-forming bolt applied in 39mm of the material may have a 15mm thread length and a 14mm shank part. What really matters is the actual thread length that the 2023 Audi Q5 wheel bolts can contact with the inner hub lug nuts.
Anytime you add wheel spacers, you need new 2023 Audi Q5 wheel bolts to fit. If you don’t replace the rims, then the calculation will be quite simple. Standard bolts are 27mm long, so you can do the math for longer ones. Giving an example, if you install 12mm spacers on an Audi FY, then the aftermarket 2023 Audi Q5 wheel bolts you need will be: thread=M14x1.5, seat=conical/ball (depends on the wheels you are using), head 17mm, and length=39mm (standard 27mm + 12mm = 39mm). Too short, you can’t fasten the wheels and spacers correctly. Too long, you may meet vibration issues.
