So I needed to retorque my wheel spacers today after a few days putting them on. As I'm taking off the standard lugs only my two locking lugs decide to strip and ruin my day. Finally got them off. Both sides lost about 1/4" to 1/2" of the stud.......

Are they still safe to use?????? I would think so but what do others say?

What about with only 7 lugs and having to tow bull ring flat bed trailer with 5 large hay bales?? Probably not.

If it were me and I had to get somewhere i would install the 7 lug nuts as normal and if possible thread the 8th shorter one on by hand and see how many turns i can get. For proper thread engagement you will need a minimum 4 turns. If you can get that then i would torque it one there to get to where i needed to be. If not just take it slow with 7.

Those (Bora) were made by the same guy who runs Motorsport Tech. You made out better than I did, since yours actually fit. I ended up scrapping mine.
