8.8 brake ??

My rotors have some play in them when you put them on. Its like the stud holes are to big, you can move the rotor back and forth a little. I know I have the right rotor. Is there something I need to do to make them fit better?

bolt the wheels on?

A LITTLE play is normal with most break setups (i do NOT have an 8.8) but there is such thing as too much play.

as long as the play is only rotational and not eccentric.
That is, if your rotors center "pilot" hole is not fitting tightly to the axle cap (in the center) then you have a problem.

Twisting around the center is ok. Shifting away from center as BAD BAD BAD.
