Source for long wheel bolts in SF Bay Area?

Check out the pic below - notice anything missing? I did! Sometime in the last 24 hours, someone stole 3 of the 5 wheel bolts from each of my 4 wheels. Possible it was some random vandalism, or someone who really needed BMW wheel bolts, but I'm also wondering if I have a fan club I didn't know about. Perhaps a sore-loser Audi driver!

Anyway, my car has 12mm Mach Schnell spacers all around, so the factory bolts are not long enough. I'm sure the shop that installed the spacers (EAS in So Cal) would be glad to send me replacement long bolts, but that'll take longer than I'd like.

Any recommendations for a BMW tuner/speed shop in the Bay Area that might have replacements? Probably someplace that sells wheel spacers...

Thanks in advance for the pointers!

Wow!

I never would have noticed until vibration set in. Is that what actually happened or did you just happen to check them and noticed several were missing? From the looks it even appears that your thief was "friendly enough" to not try and kill you by leaving you the two bolts sitting next two each other. That could have been a disaster!

Stay safe.
