    bought some bad lugs for the truck and when i went to take the tires off had to force the lug nuts off and ruined the lugs. how hard is it to replace these by myself? any input. Better to take to the shop or do myself?

    When you do replace your studs. Put a little anti-sieze on each stud. And when you put the lug nuts on, Start them by hand, not with an air gun.

    I dont know about this method. The Anti sieze is going to skew the torque reading, and if torquing to the recomended 85#, it can strip the threads off the stud. I've had it happen, which is why Im mentioning it.

    I understand what you are saying. I have seen and had too many lug nuts on other peoples rigs, siezed on the studs, and had studs break because of it. That is why I always put a bit of Anti-Sieze on them. If torqued properly, should be no issues. But discretion is advised. ;)
