Assuming the bolts that broke, broke while the vehicle was in motion,
the wheel is bent
when the broken bolts were at the bottom, there was twice as much leverage between the wheel edge and the other bolt, and nothing to restrain the near edge, it would bend like cardboard
replace the wheel

1989 dodge dynasty - rear driver side tire wobbles. Have replaced the bearings, but still not fixed. Any suggestions as to what might be wrong?


Assuming that you mean the wheel wobbles side to side when it turns, it could be a bent wheel flange - the part that holds the lug bolts on. If that is the case, you will need a new axle half. Has the car been skidded on the pavement or been run hard into a curb?

Check that the lug bolts are on tight and are the proper size.

How to replace lug studs on 2002 chrysler town


I'll try to help you. If you are having trouble with 3 out of 5 studs on one wheel you may want to go to an autoparts store or Salvage yard to look at the whole hub. Usually a press is used to remove the bolts so you would be taking off the hub anyway. When you pay for 3 bolts and labor you may be better off in a Salvage yard or parts place for a different hub. The rear hub on front wheel drive cars is like a trailer axle. Much simpler to remove mounting bolts and press in new bolt. But if rear has differential(rear wheel drive) it has an axle shaft. Would be easier to grind and drill out broken stud on car. You can draw new bolt into place by placing bolt through a socket and use the wheel nut to draw the bolt into the hub.

You have to remove the tire/wheel assy. remove the brake drum, you will see the spindle with the bolts there. punch out the broken bolts install new buy pushing thru the hole.Find some regular nuts that will fit over the stud, put your new nuts on and tighten up till flush in back.
