Default Need Assistance quick...Lug bolt question. What could I damage?

So I'm about to get new rear tires put on car. Had to take spacers off and I don't have the stock lug nuts. Any chance of damage anything using the longer bolts?

Yes, with extended length wheel lug bolts you could drive the bolts through to the backing plate causing damage... not to mention your wheels will be locked in place.

Locked in place? What do the bolts like sheer off and get stuck?

Guess I have to get someone to drive me to dealer now! Damn it why didn't I think of this before!

They go through the back side of the hub (which is pretty narrow) then will hit against the dust plate.

You could just put the spacers back in until you can get some stock bolts...

Actually the first thing it would have hit was the parking brake adjustment pieces...(I think) Saw it when I took the rotor off the other day.
