Studs? Sorry you need to be a bit more specific.


If you are talking about wheel lugs, you might want to include what type of wheels you are running and how tight you torque your lug nuts.

first thing that comes to mind is wrong lug nuts for aftermarket wheels.

Are you hand torquing them or using an impact wrench?

If its the same wheel each time, perhaps there is an issue with the mating surface size, between the stud and the wheel area, thus causing the issue.

maybe that particular rim was machined wrong from the factory. try switching that wheel to the driver side or if the spare is the the same wheel and rim switch it with that. if it doesnt happen again that was probably the issue.

Perhaps that 1950's wrench is off and you are over tightening them.

If the lugs are shearing off, then you are exceeding the tensile strength of the bolt. The material is either inferior or you are tightening them too much. I torgue to 100 lbs.

those lug nuts that autozone says fits your jeep, doesn't mean they're right for the wheels you have now. aftermarket wheels will require different lug nuts a lot of the time. i'd say take it to a tire/wheel shop that deals with a lot of aftermarket wheels and ask them. you might need lug nuts designed for those wheels, the tapers and lengths can be different.
