    I rotated the tires on my 2lt today. On the rear driver and front passenger there was a few studs that couldn't handle the 100 ft lbs of torque required per the manual's stated torque spec. Two on the rear driver snapped off and two on the passenger front I stopped on from feel before they...

    I bought a set of OEM 17 s ( tires, wheels, caps, sensors) with no lug nuts. The wheels have not arrived but when they do will I be able to mount them on the car using the 16 in. steel wheel lug nuts(temperary) or are they going to be too big to fit in the rim holes and then get a socket over...
