There's nothing wrong with the OEM studs. The OEM ones are probably the best because they don't use a cheaper metal. The problem is that someone is over torqueing them. I believe that they should be torqued to 85ftlbs but alot of shops just hit it hard with an impact wrench.

I suspect they mean the lug nut is stuck, and the lug bolt's spline is spinning in the hub.

Can you get to the backside and grind the head off the lug bolt? I'm not sure that's even possible.

sounds like it may be the wheels that are the problem. if the studs are breaking and you have tolerance issues with the wheel hole size/alignment, the wheel could be putting pressure at an angle on the studs, weakening them and eventually snapping them. i can't imagine you would be able to fit wheels with an incorrect 5 lug wheel pattern, but maybe it is possible.

I've had to replace wheel studs on my Camry. It's not too bad. You just gotta take off the wheel, and tap out the stud and pull it out from behind the rotor. Sometimes you have to rotate the wheel hub a bit to get more clearance between the dust plate and the rotor. Then wiggle a new one in from the back. Having small hands helps.

I had to replace two. First one was because I hadn't tightened the lug nuts well enough after changing my brake pads. The second one probably broke because it had been already damaged from when the first one broke.

Are you sure you have the proper seat angle on the lug nuts to your rims?
This can create those problems...

I think this. A PO of my camry, must have lost a couple of the lug nuts to mine. The ones they replaced them with had a different angle than the rim and the originals. They did fine for awhile, then one day while removing them, they would loosen a couple turns, then stop... only thing to do was wrench em off and break the lugs. All 3 of the unmatched lug nuts did this.
