My advice, once you get your stripped sheel stud replaced (cheap and relatively simple) make sure you tighten the lugs to their proper torque. this will ensure do not have any problems in the future.
We torque all our lug nuts at 90lbs but they were all powdercoated to match the wheels and when I put it bac on I didn't realize it had powder on the threads having it go on a little crooked and causing it to strip.
