2016 Chevrolet Equinox - Lug rip off

I have a 2016 EQ and just had my winter tires(on rims) put on. the garage said all of my lug nuts on all four tires were swollen and need to be replaced. I am waiting for a written quote but they said roughly about 150 per tire. Wow . does this seem right all on all tires. I had an eq for 11 years before this and never had any lug nut problems. never went to this garage then.

Insanely high. Swollen lug nuts are very common and I cannot understand $30 a lug when you can buy an entire car set for $25;
