Longer stud conversion or longer wheel bolts?

So i bought a set of 15mm wheel spacers, but my dealer ordered extended studs and not bolts as my dealer said he doesn't deal with any VAG customers...:iono: anyways!!:mad0259: he found a stud conversion kit with 50mm exposed thread and said "i don't see any extended bolts available. i would not suggest using extended bolts as over time the threads will wear on the car" that doesn't make sense in my head... leads me to believe he doesn't know what he's talking about.

should i just get a conversion kit, or call up another dealer for extended bolts? i don't really want to spend money for a conversion kit AND lug nuts unless it's for the better... not as cost effective in my opinion.

Either way works. Studs are easier for swapping wheels. I don't know why zee germans prefer bolts instead of studs and nuts like everyone else.

i know it'll make it easier but that's more money to spend :(
