The Rotor Holes Are Larger Than The Wheel Studs, Is This An Issue?

When I place the rotor on the vehicle, the holes for the wheel studs are larger than the wheel studs. Will this cause movement between the parts or noise as I drive?

No. Floating OEM rotors as well as certain PowerStop part numbers sometimes do have slightly oversized wheel stud holes compared to the size of the wheel studs. Once the wheel is torqued down to the proper value, the rotor does not move relative to the wheel or the wheel studs. All parts rotate as an assembly. If noise is present, the pad/rotor/caliper assembly should be checked to make sure all hardware is installed properly.
