Wheel bolt question?

I know I might get backlash for this question. But I just bought some new VMR v801s 18x8.5 45et for my 2012 GTI. I'm looking for black wheel bolts for the new shoes. I'm not running any spacers on the car right now.

I searched through google, with so much information i just got confused. I've read OEM bolts are 14x1.5x27mm. but people used 28mm and 26.5mm. Just trying to see what company and dimensions should I use.

Thanks for the responses! the wheels look so sexy in a piano gloss finish!

I just bought these and called it a day:

Way cheaper, and very good quality.

Fuck ECSs crazy mark-up for these.

Here's the WHOLE set shipped for less than ECS charges for 2.
AND it includes the tool.
