    How much for those new rings?
    Where were they made?

    Your piston gap is within specs. If you had any piston wear on the bore you would see it right away. If the pistons themselves look good with no rubbing marks then everything is fine. The only way for the pistons to wear is if they contact the bore. That could happen if the rings where worn down to thin. So as I stated previously, if the rest of the engine is good, then install new rings. The rings are the wear item not the piston.
