Just make sure the shank length (threaded portion) is 26mm or so. If it's longer, it could damage your car. If it's shorter, it won't secure the wheel properly.

Some lug bolts have slightly taller or shorter heads, so I would not measure the overall length of them.

Kevin, just out of my own curiosity - what causes the risk of damage through the use of overly long studs?

You will damage your handbrake mechanism. It's important to get the proper length for bolts.
