The tube lugs are totally unforgiving... they don't flex, and they allow no room for realignment. So if the forces from all the tension push the rod in any direction, other than straight down into the tube lug, the tension rods may bend. Especially if they are plain steel. Plain steel tension rods are not as strong as stainless steel rods.
    How can splay be prevented?

    Splay can be reduced or prevented in a variety of ways. Depending on the tube lugs, rubber or plastic spacers can be added or subtracted to help the tension rods line up nicely with the lug threads. Sometimes, you need to change the hardware. For example, I've experienced several instances where the hoops interfere with the tension rods/lugs alignment, no matter what I do to adjust the spacing. In most of those cases, changing the hoops fixed the problem. Triple-flange hoops are sometimes a real nuisance with respect to this issue. Sometimes the eyelets on the flange hoops are shaped in such a way that they encourage the tension rods to wander outwards as they are tightened. Single-flange and no-flange hoops with clips can do the same thing. Diecast hoops seem to do this much less, but must line up correctly to work. It really comes down to having a variety of hardware on hand, and trial and error.

    Can anyone tell me if they know of a part that will definitely match this finish and size?
    They aren't powder coated or anodised. I can't remember what the finish is called...

    The gold washer comes off and the standard washer does not.

    Thanks in advance.

    There's nothing special about that rod... it looks like it's rusting at the bottom. I would order 16 or 20 "T-052WB" from WorldMax (or Drum Factory Direct), keep your gold washers, and be done with it. They will look fine if you replace them all.

    A feasible, though expensive, solution.

    The rods would cost under $11 plus shipping. Do you mean the shipping is expensive?
