The G string on my guitar goes out of tune after 1 bend (literally!)

Is this likely to be the strings fault or is it more likely that my tuning peg is screwed?

How many times are you wrapping the string around the tuning post?

i have the same problem with the same exact string. what i do is i just keep the neck unlocked so whenever it goes out of tune, i tune it again. It's better than constantly having to unlock the neck, tune it, and lock it again.

I used to have that problem when I used a plain G string. I switched to a set of strings with a wound G, and now everything sounds right.

I've took the peg of to check..... and yeh, it's ****ed
So, If i decide to buy a new set of machine heads, will they be difficult to install?
