Default Wheel stud question

Do you guys think its safe to reuse these wheel studs?





Bought a new MS6 and the studs were A1 top condition as you can see. Just got done putting all new studs in. It was a sketchy hour drive home with only two to three lugs holding each rear wheel on. The front was a good three to four holding them on.
I should add that the car came with another set of wheels and they had bad tires on them. I had to put my wheels and tires from my wrecked MS6 on to get it home.

Why are those 4 studs shorter than the rest?

I believe those have sheared

Is this a serious question? Because it can't be a serious question. The ones that are the proper length and not stripped could be reused if lugnuts will properly thread onto them....but I wouldn't bother

Ah i see!

Lol. OP just buy new ones dude. Better to shell out $50 for a set than tens of thousands of dollars to fix your car, call an ambulance, and your surgery.

Wow are those totally jacked up.... (wheel humor there.... )

How was it installing the replacement studs? They go in nice & tight? I'd hate to think you had to replace hubs also, but things like that are, to me at least, indicative of how your cars PO handled, well, everything....

I'd look that car over pretty damn closely!
