Default 02 WRX hub stud replacement/stripped stud

So first time changing tires on my new wrx, trying to put my summers on and 3 studs snapped ( guessing because the guy over tightened them to compensate for the one stripped stud). so I go to replace them, and the one ends up stripping the splines (if that's what their called) on one of the wholes for the stud in the hub and on the stud what should I go about fixing that? And would it be easier to pull the axle and take it to my work to heat up the hub and replace the rest of the ones? Thanks, Ryan.

your wrx is old. I would look at doing the wheel bearings if you already are that deep into it. I would just do a whole hub make over.

Replace the hub. While you are at it replace the bearing too. There are two write ups on how to do so. One takes the knuckle off of the car (Guru's Guide), the other leaves the knuckle on (Harbor Freight method).

Harbor Freight wheel bearing method (works on front wheels too):

You need to replace the hub.

But...

The down and dirty way this has been fixed historically is to tack weld the stud to the hub so it doesn't spin when tightening.

Does anyone have any ideas of how to rework those splines into the hub? Or maybe just tapping the stud in would create them? Any ideas

UPDATE!!! So got a stud into that stripped hole it actually still holds very well but I think the studs I got from crappy tire are bad cause once they are pulled completely through i go to remove my lug nut and the first few threads on the stud are stripped and it happened twice. Am I best off returning them and getting the studs from subaru? Thanks

No... not unless you love having issues later...

You are better off replacing the hub as everyone has said...

You likely need wheel bearings anyway (as most have also mentioned)
