I think that he meant to say that the chrome wheel simulators were torqued on with 140 ft pounds of torque. These chrome covered wheel nuts do not need that much torque, there are 8 regular wheel nuts holding the actual wheel on, that do need to be properly torqued.
The extra torque has probably squished, broken the stainless cap. For replacement go to a truck stop, with an old one in hand. The should have bins of different sizes, compare diameter, thread pitch etc.
