Default broke 2 wheel studs....

I'm guessing a tire shop ran these down to 150 pounds or something... all 5 were a real bear to break free with the OEM tire iron.. I also think the angle of the iron relative to the stud may have contributed, but wouldn't have been as big of a deal if the lugs weren't so dang tight. I dunno.. what's odd is they broke free, went about a half a turn, then got tighter, not looser...

I got the spare on, but with only 3 out of 5 I called AAA... especially since they were right next to each other. Driving it down the street tomorrow AM though to a Chevy dealer here in Gunnison.. hope they have metric sockets!
