I have a quick question. So I was trying to take my wheel off, and snapped a stud, and I'm wondering if the rotors are held on with the lugs or if I can just rip it all off and life is good with a new rotor.

The lug bolts go through the rotors into the hub, so you should be good to go if you can get the wheel off with the broken bolt still in place. Then you'll have to get the locating screw out of the rotor to remove that. If you had a stuck lug bolt, I can't imagine the rotor screw cooperating with you at all.......

Sounds like a pain in the bum. What would be the best plan of action in removing it? Thank you for your knowledge.

Yay! More money in tools I Dont yet have. Something that seems like it will be useful more than once though. Thank you for your help. :)
