Alloy nuts

Just bought some Audi 17inch alloys. Can I use steel wheel bolts on these?

They they are genuine Audi, they should have the same seat. Just double check the bolts are long enough, but they usually are.

As NZDubNurd wrote, you could use the oem-bolts, if they have the correct length.
It's important to use the specified (users manual) torque on the bolts with alloy wheels.
