Rear Towing Eyes

I removed the rear tow point to make room for the winch, so i needed to replace it with something, i decided on two 25 tone eyes both bolted and welded to each side of the chassis. Attached to the eyes are 12.5 ton shackles.
The eyes are attached with M24 x 180 bolts, and welded all round, i didn't bother with HT bolts, i would guess they would be ok as 8.8 bolts.
the winch hook here is a proper 10ton rated hook, the one that came with the 10 ton winch was rated at 3.5ton ??
