Conical
14x1.5x30mm length

I ran the Gorilla small diameter lug bolts, since the TSW's have narrow lug holes, part number: 17019SD-20

Does the offset could influence the bolt length, I have 18 x 8.5 with an offset of 43

If you get them from a vendor like discounttiredirect, they will include the conical lug bolts. Offset is not typically part of the length, but you should double check how far they thread into the hub. I have the TSW interlagos and the first set of bolts was a little short and only engaged a few threads. I want to say I went to 35mm length but I'd have to pull one to check.

Where have you found the length ?

Finally I ordered the lug bolt on tdotperformance, I asked the last owner and with his measurement, he told me 30mm too.

Stock length is 27mm, but I ran the 30mm's for additional insurance/little extra length for more thread engagement

Finally on Tdotperformance, they don't have the bolts in stock, so it's a special order and it at take 2 mounts to receive my bolts... So I asked tdot to cancel the order and get refund, I will have to find a Canadian Store where they sell 14 x 1.5 x 30 conical, tomorrow I will ask a local shop if they have bolts in stock. I should have the new rim tomorrow.

BMW 6 series lugs might fit. Had a buddy of mine run their black lugs on his Gti. Give your local spot a call?

Finally I got the bolt at a shop from Levis called BestBuy auto parts (not the electronic store ^^)

I ordered adjustable rear camber arms to correct the camber before installing the rims and tires.

What suspension are you running?

Unless you're running air or something, that you need extra camber to tuck, the rear camber is adjustable with the factory bolt

I'm on coilovers 2.50" front, 2.75" rear. The last owner of the rims and tires have a MK6 GTI with the same setup, he had a little camber, but all the tire got camber used (he did a rotation), so I don't want to take chance with the brand new tires. And what bolt are you talking about ?

Installed the rims today and forgot that I need hub centric rings, I don't know what size I need, do you know what would be a good size for the centric rings, any recommendations ?

Thanks you and have a nice day,
Kind regards.

TSW's take 72.1mm rings & 57.1mm for your car.
I have a set of 4, brand new, from my old TSW wheels if you want them
