If the bolts were cross threaded then they would have probably damaged the threads in the hub too.....

I would go to an alloy wheel specialist and get a set of bolts suitable for use with your wheels and make sure they do up freely and to the correct torque.It's not worth the risk of having a wheel come loose by using the wrong/faulty bolts or having a damaged hub thread.

Good luck and let us know how you get on.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
