You might have cracked the chrome finish on the washers, what brand are they?

I hit mine at about 75-80 after I put them on with the impact.

Same thing happened to me when I used the weld washers at 100 foot pounds. I had a spare set of washers (may have been Centerlines) that are all steel. I think the welds may me some form of cast washer. I'm glad I noticed the failure before making a pass on the bad washers. The weld washers actually broke into a few pieces when I removed them.

weld lug nut are gorilla lugs, they are cast. Were as centerlines are made by McGard. McGard shank lug nuts are hardened,along with the washers.
