Question about Ford Explorer
No...absolutely not. However....it is more likely that the lugs were not tightened in the first place that caused the lugs to break. Wrong size tire will not do that. Furthermore...its a pretty simple fix. Jack up the wheel....pull off the caliper bracket and rotor will slide right off. Then you have a hub in front of you with all of the broken studs facing you. Take a hammer...smack out the studs from the hub. They are splined in there....one good hit can smack them out. Call your local NAPA or Auto Zone...give them your vehicle info and tell them you need all of the lug studs and lug nuts for on side of the vehicle. They should have them in stock. The rest is just reversing your removal procedure. Turn the wheel out...smack them in till the flat base of the stud is flush with the back of the hub. put rotor and caliper back on....and then the tire....tighten the lug nuts! You are good to go. Probably a $20 repair. Caliper bolts may be very tight....they use lock tight in the factory. You should get ahold of a good 1/2" breaker bar
