Not so much out of true as much as the design with the nipple in the hub allows one to
vibrate out and vanish. Probably the most common theme with owners. Not so
much after the first few thousand miles. Just keep an eye on the rears especially.

Some put wicking green loc-tite on the nipple and zip tie where the spokes cross.

I'm the resident wheel wrecker. Bent them four times and had Woody's put a heavy duty
rear rim set up on. I don't see it as a chronic problem with Teneres. Rocks happen.
