2015 2017 mustang gt studs and nuts question

i was putting 5/16th spacers on, no longer studs were needed. but i noticed when i was putting my front wheel on. one of the nuts just felt like it just wanted a little more tightening ? i'm hearing that the nuts on the 550's with the caps are softer then previous years lug nuts that didnt have the caps on nuts. is this true? do you think i stretched the lug bolt, [is this possible?]or pushed the nut to far? again its torqued,but just didnt feel like the others?
thank you for any help you can give.

just checked all wheels,lugs tight. by looking around online i'm seeing that the 550 cheap lug design is the issue. new one piece solid lugs are on my christmas list ! i dont race it at all,just a nice day driver so the crappy lugs will do for now.

i ended up removing them and returning them. i was reading to many bad things. and i'm not going to add longer studs. what ended up happening was the aluminum cap spun on the lug nut. i had 4 left over from when i put my locks on. going to get new one piece good lugs for christmas. maybe in future i will get the hub cent. good type with lug bolts on them?
no rush,car still looks awesome !!! imo
