I believe R13 is M14.

I think you need 19mm M12 with 1.5mm thread nut and standard stud length of 47mm.

I've never changed them but it seems quite conclusive.

I think there might be a translation problem here.
Can you post a photo of what the problem is?

Yes, are you finding R13 too big?

I think you need smaller bolts as I posted above.

Solved the issue, i went to the previous car owner and took them. Thanks red, those were what i ve been looking for. Now i have stock Ford Puma rims. I attached a photo with them. Next, i will repair the rust, and paint her black. Have a nice day!
