I’ve never had issues with wheel studs being cross threaded or breaking, but recently I’ve had 2 cross threaded on and 2 break off. I’m sure this is simply due to the shop cross threading the lug nut when my wife dropped the car off to have the tires rotated and possibly worn out studs. But I’m wondering if steel rims can contribute towards wheel studs breaking. I’ve ordered all new studs and will change them out this weekend. Really just trying to justify going to an aluminum rim.
And I’m just going to rotate the tires myself from now on
