I'd be surprised if stepped studs came in the correct exposed size. Heck it's hard to find normal studs in that size.
My "head guy" warned me about stud quality in this application. The studs he uses (which look like or are the Porsche ones) are a higher quality than some that are available. (He sent me some for free once.)
A Timesert is also smaller in diameter than then next stud size up i.e. it takes a <10mm tap AFIK
On an obsure note, he uses stainless Timeserts in heads.
