Oh my god no

I was driving to practice today when all of a sudden my rear end felt like it was shifting and then I look and my back left wheel is flying down the road. I pull into the nearest place I can. Go get my wheel and then go take a look. One of the bolts flew off and the 4 others were bent. The other side in the back the tire is like slanted inwards and is bent weird. I really don't know what happened. The inside of the rim where the rim connects to the car looks like someone took a dremel with a metal cutting wheel and went crazy in it.

If you don't torque your wheel tight enough or over torque them that will happen. Sounds like that's what happened

I would get them on, lower it and tighten them until I couldn't and then try some more with the tire iron.

You're supposed to tighten them when you have it up. Then make sure you have them tight enough when you lower it. Then check again after you drive on them a little ways.

I think it's from too many burnouts by the previous owners and me. The bolts were stripped I think I need a new axle

That has nothing to do with it unless you were doing burnouts with loose wheels. You can probably put new wheel studs in.

I put new studs in and everything seems fine. My dad said it had to do with burnouts but I didn't see how it did

I didn't wanna argue with him but I didn't understand how burnouts could cause your wheel to fly off. Or even break an axle. I might just upgrade to a 31 spline setup relatively soon though

Yes agree, over tightening will damage your studs, and in many cases snap the studs off.

the german torque spec of "goot-n-tight" is not the correct one, especially on rims, hell buy a cheap torque wrench from harbor frieght for 20 bucks, it may not be exact but they will all be within +/- a couple ft/lbs of each other.
