Basically they are same thread as standard V4 bolts (obviously!) with a long shank about 12-14mm between the head and the thread. This shank is slightly larger diameter than the diam of the threaded part, so the bolt cannot (easily) be pushed through the hole in the wheel - it needs to be screwed & pulled through. There is no tapered part between the 19mm head and the shank, it's a flat face to the base of the head.

Whilst on the subject of "soccer ball" alloys, I'm on the lookout for a fifth wheel should anyone have one lurking in their garage/shed.
