I use America's Tire (Discount Tire, same business/alt. name)
all the time.
The folks working there, do exactly as I ask/request.
They will turn/rotate the tires on the wheels 180* if wheel weight/oz is excessive.
Prep/clean the wheel surface before adhering the sticky weights that I commonly request.
They allow me to select my tire PSI and lug nut torque choice... along with other services I request for my monies paid.
Thought everyone did that too (should)
Being ignorant is no excuse IMO.
Ignorance is akin to laziness... especially when every answer is available, right there at our fingertips or ears
Maybe the difference is... I know what I want/expect for my paid services.
And so I have that discussion with them before they even begin work.
Doesn't matter whom that service/vendor might be.
I'll suppose if one just drops it off and says do yer thang...
then that will be what the customer gets.
the customer has to take some responsibility, for being clear on what services they are paying for... and in fact receive.
I often stay there and watch the techs as they do their work on my junk.
Because I trust no one.
If they deviate from what my instructions are... correction comes swiftly.
Over torquing the wheel studs does more then just break studs.
That's the most obvious/visual thing maybe...
But less obvious/noticeable is the possible warping of the rotor and/or hub from over torquing the lug nuts.
Warped rotors cause oscillation and can lead to vibration issues.
83-84 ft lbs max... more then that... is fubar
