I've heard of people running with a broken stud, but I wouldn't like to recommend it

i personally would still drive the car only if i really had to though.
if it sheered when you were tightening it, you probably just over tightened it? where about did it snap, is there still a good bit sticking out of the hub? you may be able to get a pair of mole grips or similar to get a hold of it and remove it. since it wont be forcing against the wheel i would think it should come out quite easily.
