Disc hub torx bolt threading worn away
I have a mavic crossride disc wheel, and on the hub, apparently one of the holes for the torx bolts had lost a lot of its threading when I changed out the rotor on the wheel. Keep in mind, the rotor I changed out, I torqued it the way it should be, 55 inch pounds. When I was securing the new rotor, 5 of the torx bolts managed to screw in perfectly to 55 inch pounds, but one just kept spinning, and it's at that time I realized the threading in that hole was partially worn away. What should I do to prevent this from happening again?
