Very similar to what I did, tightened up and then backed it off.Did seem to spin freely with a touch of float.
Time will tell.
The thing I forgot to mention in the post was the discovery of a wheel spacer on the drivers rear but no spacer on the passenger rear... its one of those universal 5mm spacers and when I did the driver rear I just assumed it was to allow the alloy to "fill the arch" but with the passenger one missing I,m wondering if it was a solution to fix a geometry issue with the rear axel.
I have ordered a full set as I am working on the assumption that they were originally an axel set and the passenger on just got left off at some point but has anyone experienced this type of thing before?
