    Question Transporter 2009 T5 2.5 TDI - advice on switching to alloys

    Hi, advice needed on wheel bolts and possibly spigots (if needed).....

    Recently acquired black 235/50/R18 alloys to go on 2009 Transporter T5 2.5 TDI conversion.

    Believe the rims are Sportline but the badge cap is easily changed so not 100%.
    I have a few questions

    1) When replacing original steels to above alloys, would M14 1.5 27 black wheel nuts be correct size for both wheel and locking nuts?
    2) Would i need any spigots to ensure correct wheel fit with these alloys and if so, what size ?

    Appreciate anyone's help as this is my daughter's project and I am not an expert in this area. She has already completed much of the conversion and the wheels are the next big step

    Many thanks
    David
