Do I need longer bolts or would the standard ones be sufficient for 7mm spacers?

I have 5mm spacers and bought the longer black bolts from Porsche, surprisingly the longer bolts are cheaper than the standard bolts.

Following on from this .....

I am about to fit new wheels but would rather use my red collar wheel bolts which are for the 5mm spacers - anyone know if there are any issues running these with standard wheel? i.e. they may poke out the back of the hub a few mm...
