Rotor lug bolt holes too big?

    I put a new set of aftermarket rotors on my 2003 4WD tacoma and the holes that are drilled in the rotor for the lug bolts to extend through seem to be oversized. Is this normal? The holes seem to be a mm or two larger than the lug bolt. On other vehicles they snug up nicely or there is a retainer clip to hold them in place.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you press against it and try to wiggle it up and down does it move alot? If my memory is correct the studs have a little bevel edge on them that allows the rotor to seat real nice when the lug nuts are tightened down. I understand your worry because if theres too much wiggle room the rotor will be off centered. What brand did you get and how much were they if I may ask? I took mine to machine shop to have them turned, it was $25 per rotor....maybe next time I buy new.....

    I have always had a little bit of wiggle room around the rotor studs. It tightens up when you squeeze down 6 studs at 90ft-lbs in a beveled hole. Don't worry about it.

    Pretty well stock
    The rotor should be hub-centric and the larger wheel stud holes won't matter.
