A while back one of my wheels almost fell off! 4 of the 5 bolts sheared and I was lucky to pull over before the wheel fell off.

After getting the spare on I looked at the spigot, it was very mangled and although loca garage thought I could re use them I order some new ones after people on here said it could have been the reason the bolts sheared.

Is it worth replacing the spigots on the other 3 wheels at the same time or should I leave them and assume they're ok?

I'd presume the old ones were either the wrong size or total [email protected] to have deformed like that.

I have used the same set of spigot rings for the last three years and 80,000 miles and they still look brand new.

Thanks,

I think I'll change them all to be on the safe side!
Good plan. The new ones look the same as mine. Guess they will be fine. But might be worth checking after a while just to be sure.
And make sure your bolts are torqued correctly too T:
