Default Comical or spherical?

Did a quick search and didn't find any answers...
2015 Audi A3 Prestige Plus with 18" rims.
Are the bolts conical or spherical? The rims I want to buy from ECS state they require ball seat, which I assume means spherical.....
Can't I just reuse the existing lug bolts?

Thanks ahead of time.....

Solid rule of thumb is to purchase what is recommended by the manufacturer. If your not sure, call company your buying wheels from (ECS - 330.331.2003) You can also call your local Audi dealer's Service dept, and they should be able to give you reliable information as well.

Check out this vid, will be a quick watch to explain what you're asking.

Hope this was helpful.
