Special anti-seize high-temp compound is available at any auto parts store.
Ask for it. It will help stop the breaking!

There is another option. The wheel if not factory, might not be sitting over the hub. This would cause this issue as the studs would be taking the full weight of the vehicle. Aftermarket wheels sometimes sit on top of the hub and not over it. If the wheel is sitting over the hub, it will add support to the weight stopping this issue.

The only things that can cause this is either overtightening or a bent axle face or wheel

How do I replace all five lug nuts on front driver side wheel?

They are pressed in from the backside of the wheel hub that the studs stick out from. And not like needing a heavy press- once you get the old studs driven out (usually works with a hammer or small mallet), you can easily draw the new studs right into a snug fit by using the lug nuts, the new ones you just bought along with the 5 new studs, available at most any parts store.

See it's not the lug nuts that are broken, those nuts tighten the tire to the hub by the lug nut studs that the tire fits over. It is the studs themselves that are breaking off. This is common enough that parts stores carry replacements. A chevy dealership might have just your size in stock, if you don't mind paying extra high dealership charges, but it might not be that much for these rather inexpensive items. In a lot of cases, the studs can be removed from the hub as it sits, but there are cases where the hub must be removed from the vehicle for stud replacement. You can eyeball it and pretty much tell if the studs can be removed easily, after you take the wheel (tire) off. For any work on the vehicle, don't rely on the jack. Use blocks or jack-stands always.

The drivers side front keeps breaking wheel studs any idea why?

eather a bent wheel or a bad wheel bearing, Both of these could be your problem , Try swaping sides and see if does it on same side if so i would say wheel bearing out. If does on other side i would say it's a bad wheel. Good luck to you.

2000 Dodge Caravan....broken wheel studs...

Yeah , it's a fairly simple repair, All the wheel studs must be replaced and lug nuts also.Closely examine the wheel or get competent tyre replacement company to double check for damage ! Remove the brake disc caliper and brake disc itself (usually 2 cross head screws) , tap off (gently) it may be stuck thru corrosion / rust etc , Broken studs can be knocked out(towards drive shaft ) of the hub assy with a suitable drift and hammer (splined into hub) . The studs are a servicable replacement part. Check all other wheel nuts as this is usually a result from poor fixing or wheel replacement recently .. Good luck

I need visual help on my 1995 chevy c2500. its 8600 pounds gross with 13 inch rear drums, need to know how to get drums off without breaking anything

Hit the drums with a hammer. Serious to god! Hit the sides, hit the face between the studs, soak studs and center ring with wd40. Don't worry about breaking the drum. You have to be a muscle man to do so and as long as you don't hit the studs, you will not break anything either.

Broken wheel stud.

Studs are pressed in. Heat the studs with a propane torch, and then use a ballpein hammer to pound them out. Insert new studs, and use nuts to draw them into place
