Where would you put it ,between the housing and bulb lip ? If so wouldn't that affect the beam ?

Lookin' good.

If you notice any moisture, (dry them out first) and seal all around them with some clear silicone caulk.

I tried the set that came with them and they fit snug ,just like all aftermarket and even tires are never the same diameter as another.I took the rubber o-rings off and wrapped the channel with a few layers of pin stripping tape ,then put the o-ring back on and now are snug.
