I understand your reasoning if the stud is threaded along its entire shaft, but the Turner studs have a short course of threads on the wheel hub end, then a solid/non-threaded section, and then the long course of threads on the lugnut end. So as you torque them down to 16 ft-lbs, you're actually bottoming them out against the hub. You achieve resistance, and it would likely be quite difficult to get them much beyond 30 ft-lbs or so, as some stated above.
haha no pun intended

anyways, i see your reasoning, but on the last set i owned, there was little to no resistance. i just made sure that they were each the same distance from the hub.
