Make sure you drill centered with the correct bit before you try and tap an M10.

If you're not sure what bit to use, they have many charts that show the correct bit for each thread size. Here is a link to a place with several charts: 23 Printable Tap Drill Charts [PDF] ᐅ TemplateLab

Good luck, let me know if you have any questions.
Alright cool appreciate it, I'm going to give the m10 a shot and get some new bolts. Saw on the chart M10 x 1.25 suggests an 8.9mm bit so i'll have to find that size at home depot.

Id use a helicoil set for the m8 bolt. Buy a kit off of eBay for $15.

The inserts are stainless steel and wont rust.

Hit it with some PB Blaster daily, torch it and JB weld a new bolt head on there. Should come off with that kinda combo.
