Can you just bolt them on to the hubs or do you need to put washers between rotor and hub, hub and rotor?

Mmm!

ahh, well, simple-ish.

If you have XTR calipers, do you have XTR rotors? There is normal 6-bolt, then there is Shimano centrelock... guessing you don't have Shimano rotors from the q?

No - what Ive done is simply bolt them onto the Shimano hubs. They dont look like shimano rotors. Seem to fit ok?

sound like they will be fine, guess you bought them as a set in which case diameter should be right which is key.

Welcome to brakes that work in the wet! (until you rip through the pads and end up metal/metal, in which case they make a nice noise and work less well, but you have so much leverage available you just mash them anyway :))
