    replaced my wheels and tires with procomp alloys a couple of months ago. i would say about 8 months ago. after some balancing and brake pad changes, now i have a total of 3 lug nuts that seized. all of them from the front wheels. i'm using gorilla lug nuts. i'm thinking, is this because of the lug nuts? or is there something going on that i'm not aware of.

    They were probably over torqued.
