They've been overtorqued. Studs will fracture. Rims will bend. Wheels will fall off. Most tire shops have a sign that says they aren't responsible. Thinking a half way decent lawyer could have fun with that. A 1" drive will probably spin the studs in the holes, if it's an impact gun. If it's a bar, then you should be able to break the studs off cleanly.
Edit: Duh! You did say ratchet. It's been a long day. Carry on.
