Has anyone else had any issues with snapping wheel studs? I noticed tonight I'm missing THREE in the rear. I've got aftermarket wheels, but factory size on OEM tire. Torqued to 100ft/lbs by hand. No impact. Has to be faulty study no?

Did they snap while you were tightening them down or did they break after you put some miles on the new wheels?

Our Bronco Raptor lug nut Torque is 150 ft/lbs. All other Bronco's are 100 ft/lbs. Are the aftermarket wheels for a Bronco or Bronco Raptor?
Bronco is a 6x139.7mm bolt pattern with 12mm studs
Bronco Raptor (F-150 Raptor hubs) is 6x135mm bolt pattern but with 14mm studs

If the wheels are for a Bronco it explains the wheels studs breaking.
