one of my customers has a 08 sterling bullet (dodge 5500). I swapped out his steel wheels for aluminum and now he's breaking wheel studs. he uses the truck to haul trash. its set up as a small roll off truck. he does back up and jam the brakes when he dumps the cans at the landfill, but he never had trouble with the steel wheels for the first 200k miles and has broken 4 studs in the last 10k miles. have you guys ever run into this?

The only difference is the length, I would be talking to your supplier and get anouther set of studs from a different manufacturer. You did use a torque wrench and lube the threads?
