Default Question about wheel studs

So I have a set of BBS RAs that need extended wheel studs to run (Damn...). I was shopping around for them and it seems the only company that makes them specifically for the Miata at 25 dollars for a set of 4 (So, maths would find that's 100 dollars all around).

I did some research and came across these:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...d=380235231587

Granted they're chinese parts, but gloss over that for a second.

Is there any difference in wheel studs besides the thread pattern/whatnot? Will these, if I were to buy them right now, work on a Miata?

Thanks.

Spline count, and the fact that they're the only thing holding the wheels to the car. Just not something I would cheap out on.

$100 is a pretty good deal, I found some arp's that fit but I think I payed a bit more (like 140 for the car). I have ul6's with the ul6 lug nuts and the studs are flush with the ends of the lugs so I have a lot of room if I were to want spacers.
