Default Quick question about lug studs

So, I ended up getting a flat tire yesterday. No big deal I thought. 14 hours later i finally get the tire off. Turns out the lug stud had stripped at the base, the splines were all worn smooth. had to drill it, dremel it, hammer it, and break it out in pieces. Anyways, the question I have is this. On the the hub, are there notches where the splines are supposed to fit, or is the edge of the hole you put the stud through smooth. I've already had to replace a few studs on the front last summer, but can't remember.

It's a 2001 limited edition.

Thanks guys.

Smooth if I remember. Not important though. They either over tightened with a air wrench or they been run with wheel loose. You should not be having these issues.
