Source of long 14 mm Fuchs style wheel bolts with spacer

I have a 5 bolt conversion on the front of my 1975 914, I think the PO said 911 parts. He used 1/2" wheel spacers and screw-in studs with no flange on the back. One stud was missing when I got the car, and I've read they have a reputation for backing out. I don't like these studs and can't use flanges ones like those on the back because the hub is not flat. Just saw a comment from Dave D about spot-facing, but would first like to know if longer bolts are available before exploring that idea further.

I tried to find longer bolts with the Fuchs rounded seat, but could not find any long enough in the searching I did. I recently read that the 914-6 had spacer plates, don't recall source. So that implies that longer bolts are out there, or there is another good solution.

Anybody know what I can do here?

The 911 and 914/6 used hubs with studs. Hubs used with spacers needed longer studs. Not a good idea to try and find longer bolts.

the 914 alloy lug bolts have 40mm of shank, the screw in studs are only about an inch of thread once screwed in
