There are different length bolts, designed for wheels of different designs. From memory I think AR use something like 25mm and 38mm thread lengths.

The easiest solution is to take one of your bolts out and measure the length of the threaded section. That's the length you want.

The "fits Alfa" bit of your short bolt seller's descriptions refers to the diameter and pitch of the bolt thread and the seat shape.. so it's not necessarily duff... they should have just mentioned the length of the bolts.

Peugeot wheel bolts also fit Alfas, again you have to make sure thread size (M12 1.25mm), taper fitting and length (25mm, 38mm etc) are correct
