Video: My wheel stud conversion (after my wheel came off while I was driving!)

My bolts actually snapped while I was driving and my wheel came off! So I decided to switch to wheel studs. Here's my video:

Bimmette, it's scary to hear about your story of the bolts snapping while on the road. Any idea what might have been the cause? Were they excessively tightened by a shop? I use wheel spacers too and I use the non-OEM bolts that came with the spacers. I'm just worried that might happen to me too so I want to understand what caused yours.

I don't believe the bolts were overtorqued. I think they were just bad quality.

Glad you and your car were safe. Do you need to torque the wheel studs with a torque wrench?
