Hubs are shot when they don't roll smoothly and concentrically and no amount of adjusting can fix it. Sometimes you can see pitting or gauling on the race surfaces or the ball bearings. It's not a sudden thing, but rather a continuim. What some people call shot can really be used and what some people are using should really beconsidered shot. Suffice to say if the keep you hubs lubed, clean, and adjusted they will last a long time.
