Wheel bolts are not the same size for all vehicles. Vehicles with larger wheels usually require larger bolts, while vehicles with custom wheels may require different sized bolts from most similar cars.

While not all cars use the same size of wheel bolts, the sizes of wheel bolts themselves are standardized so that wheels that use the same type of bolts can interchange them in most cases. Car manufacturers often use standardized bolt sizes across many of their vehicles, so there is a good chance that bolts from the standard wheels on one car can fit the wheels of a similar car of the same make.
