Well, I striped a wheel lug stud just now. Swapped out tires to the Motoclaw, torqueing to 78 lbs ft and she went. The manual calls for 88 lbs ft. I have been lubing the treads so wanted to stay away from full torque. makes me wonder if these studs are good quality material.....No problems with any of the others though.

Personally, I think they get weakened at the factory from over torquing. I had to drill out quite a few screws when I was installing accessories to get them out. Good news is, you can get replacement studs quickly.

The other good news is there is plenty of room to replace the stud without pulling the hub. Used my trusty Harbor Freight ball joint tool and it popped right out!
