LOL!!! I would have laughed in the guys face! 2 people my ass
My guess is the tire clowns over torqued the nuts, stretching the studs to the point of cracking all eight at the base, where the thread ends, (the stud is undercut slightly smaller than the minor diameter of the thread), and the bulge for the spline begins.
I'd replace the eight studs on the other side as well.
My rational: The same hamfisted knucklehead who 'fornicated the canine' on the driver's side, oh wait, "the same two
guys", LOL, were also responsible for the passenger side. New studs and lugs are cheap.
