you would be fine with 5 for a while. local auto parts will have a new for you, simple to replace, they are pressed in so a cold chisel and BFH will pop out the broken one. to put in the new one, a couple of larger washers and use the lug nut to pull it back into place.

buy an extra lug to pull the new stud in, that way you don't mess up the stock lugnut
