Couple different reasons. Are they correct lug nuts for the rims?

Were they torqued, and then retorqued?

I have even heard the tire needs to be up off the ground when torqued.

What are you torque them too?

So we really don't have enough information but that will give you some ideas.

As above, do your aluminum rims require a special lug nut with an alignment shoulder? Generally speaking aluminum is too soft and will distort/flow with a standard lug nut intended for a steel wheel.

Might be the 52" tires???
Good point! All Broncos were produced with 5 on 5.5 inch lug patterns. That is a far cry from 8 on 6.5 inch for an F250/F350. The 8 bolt configurations with up to 9/16 studs would give much greater clamping force on the 6.5 inch bolt circle compared to the Bronco's.

I think you missed my point. I've never heard of 52" tires. Maybe 32. Must be a typo or his lug nuts really are falling off or already fell off! I'd like to see a picture...

Might be time for an 8 lug upgrade to keep those 52" tires on.
