I broke some wheel studs trying to do my brakes. I was able to get the old studs out but do not have space to get new studs in. Any suggestions?
Do you

Which end front or rear? What were you doing that broke the studs as some things can do bearing damage and you would be better off replacing the hub.

Remove caliper then use space created Then position stud in hub using spacers you can seat lug by pressing on with lug nut

That is about the only way, unless you replace the hub.
Might I ask how you broke them removing the tires? Are they rusted or cross threaded? If either of those you may want to knock out the remainder and replace both the studs and lug nuts to prevent it from happening again.
