Hi, yes in some cases, but not when the hub and drum don't separate.

Wheel snapped off in the Keys

Lol, yea, that makes a difference.

I concede the point.

The hubs and drums on my trailer are more conventional,

I assumed.....

Recently retired and now broke down in the Florida Keys and you want us to help and feel sorry for you.

Let me think about it. Nope, didn't change anything.

Glad no damage. Good luck and safe travels.

I think the wheel was not tightened properly. When the lugs are loose the rim will come off in short order. Most folks think the lugs hold the tire on. Actually the friction between the rim and the brake drum hold the rim on there. The bolts just provide the compression to keep the two surfaces in contact. Bolts clamp two things together. The bolt is not designed to handle shear loads. If the bolts were to tight, you might have one or two bolts that came off. If they were loose like if they did not torque them after getting them snug, then they will come off. You need to talk to whoever put the wheels on.

If the studs were broken due to over-torque, wouldn't that be reflected as a tension failure rather than a shear?

In all fairness, it seems logical that wheel studs will break off like that from over tightening, but it is something I have never seen in actuality.

Usually happens because;

1. Loose lug nuts
2, improper wheel pilot for hubs
3. Aluminum wheels using wrong style lug nuts

Over tightened lug nuts almost always result in stripped studs and nuts.

Now if a person were to strip every single stud on a wheel it would get loose and break the studs.

Sorry for your luck. Better to lose a wheel than have a radial shred on ya.

There is an awful lot of assuming going on here without seeing any pics.

Over torqued wheel nuts,just check the rest of our wheels with a torque wrench suspect there all over torque if so replace all wheel studs.
