That's not a bad idea. Needs to be done carefully, with the correct hardware though (which I'm sure you did). More choices with lug nuts than bolts, for sure.
I thought I would hate lug bolts the first time I did wheels with them, but having done them a few times now (and we have some on the VW as well), I kinda like them. Aligning the wheel on the hub is easy when it's a hub centric fit.
