Re: What would make all the wheel studs shear off?

but if they were loose, the tire would fall off, but the studs would still be intact. they would be stripped and beat up, but still should be there....right?

No not necessarily. If the nuts are loose, the wheel will wobble, and slam back and forth on the studs and will snap them. I was driving a old Buick back from Florida and it was wobbling pretty good so I pulled over. There were only two nuts still on and the other three studs were snapped off. Luckily I stopped before any of the above sinerio's happened to me.
