are you properly torquing them down? is the wheel flat on the hub?

Do you mean that the bolts are coming loose eventually after a bit of driving?

You need different bolts if the wheels don't have a round depression for the bolts to fit into. Then make sure you know what torque those wheels call for. You could damage them if you put too much torque on them.

A picture of what your wheel looks like at the bolts would help.

Replica wheels are the problem !
The wheel studs are too short, and the are coming out, I have seen it on the customer car.
You need longer studs ! NOW !

I always make sure that there is a minimum of 6 turns of the stud, to assume that it will torque properly, anything under six ( turns ) is unacceptable.

Hope that helps

Take your car to autozone and have them see if they have any lug bolts that will fit. You don't have enough information for anyone to help you other than in person.

Sounds like the OP's bolts may be the wrong type.

Very important that the bolt type match the wheel. Bad things can happen if they don't.
