I’ve got a 2005 Chevy Malibu Classic. I went to get new tires a few days ago and the place I went to said they wouldn’t put new ones on because three of my lug nuts are cross threaded. I took one of the bad ones off and showed the nut and stud to someone else and they said it was just over torqued. I don’t know what either of these things would look like because I’m a total car noob so I need some other opinions.
I’ve got three that I assume look like this out of five total on my front passenger tire. I intend on getting them fixed in a few days (going to a different tire place). I would still like to be able to drive to work, which is a 10min journey where the speed limit doesn’t go higher than 40mph.
So what actually is the issue with my studs and nuts, and will I be okay driving for a few days until I can get them fixed?
