Kick the tire. Not only will it make him feel better, but it should come off. The center of the wheel is probably a tight fit where it fits on the 'hub' (where the brakes and wheel bearings are located. Kick the tire near the outer edge, continue all around 'til it comes off. Please let me know how you make out. countrycurt0

spray pentrating oil around where wheel meets hub and also around lug bolts let set for about 15 min then take a sledge hammer and hit from underneath make sure the truck is blocked up good for safty
if that doesnt work take a small sissor jack between the rim and the fram and put a lot of pressure on it then hit it with the sledge from underneath

You will have to remove the brake drum or rotor if it has disc brakes and drive the broken lug out of the drum or rotor. Purchase a new lug from any auto parts store buying the exact same size and drive the new one in. Reinstall the tire/wheel and torque the lug nuts to 100 lb/ft with a torque wrench.

SOURCE: 2 lug-nut studs sheared off
I would only be guessing on the why it happened
You would be the one to know the vehicles history
I NEVER use air guns on wheel lugs or seldom
anything else & I have every tool you can own
The pros can not start their day or function at all
without an air tool
So I would say they broke them with too much air
Also, I will disagree with the trade publications, which
I get,having once owned a business, based on
almost 50 years experience & say you need clean
studs & I use anti-seize and only 80# on lugs nuts.
Never had one loosen up.
Hopefully you can hammer them out & install new ones
If they were on the front,then you don't always have clearance
& have to replace an expensive hub assy.
You can do that yourself
Get the studs at parts store & use an old nut & some spacers
or washers to draw then in
Or have a tire store do it
They may be able to use there air gun to pull them in
without any issues
