I would call a few local shops and ask them how much it would be to install a new set (one hub worth). You are probably going to want to replace all the studs on the corner that you snapped one off just to be safe.

....or just replace them yourself. I believe they are splined at the end that's pressed into the hub. You should be able to hit them out with a hammer. Go buy new ones from the auto parts store or from the dealership. Push them back in from the correct side and then use the lug nut to pull the bolt back in. It might not go all the way in until you remount the rim and finish pulling it through. I've done it this way several times.

yeah and as i've learned the official name is wheel studs. Considering the amount of autox and wheel swapping i've done i was probably due. I'm about due for rotors too so i think i'm just going to do it all. I might possibly pull the calipers as well and clean and paint them properly. the studs i'm looking at are here. are the 2.5's long enough i assume?

so i went and bought a stock stud from the dealer and it measure just over 1.5 inches long. 2.5's are going to be way to long not having to adjust for any off set. Anyone know of a place i can buy good wheelstuds in the 1.75 to 2" variety? ARP doesn't make anything shorter then a 2.5
