Your bolts

your rotor bolts are the six screws that hold your rotor onto your hub. take the wheel off and see how it's connected. bottoming out them means: were the bolts too long so that they hit the hub (or something) that prevented them from seating completely. make sure there is still room under the end of the bolt as well as making sure they are tight

hope that helps :cool:

yep thats it

sorry for the terms I used I could have made it easier to understand. On some hubs it can be a big Problem if the screws hit bottom before they clamp the rotor it can snap the hub. A good way to check is to screw the bolts in with out the rotor ( do not tighten) and then see if the rotor fits between the head of the screw and hub.
