What year of granada hubs do I need to look for to go with pinto spindles on a DW-8. Are there other models other than granada that can be used? Is there any machine work to do to the hubs other than bolt pattern (for chevy 5 0n 5)?
Thanks.

Have to have redrilled to 5 inch bolt pattern because they are 4 1/2, They bolt right on a pinto spindle.

you can get the pinto(granada) rotors by US brake with 5/8 studs and 5x5 bolt pattern for $49, and their lighter than the stock ones.

You could also use the '79up (I believe)GM metric rotors which are lighter yet. UsBrake version of the GM hubs are 16# and the Fords are about 18.3#, stock versions are heavier than that.

You might look into the 10" hub for Pinto spindles with 5x5" bolt circle. 15 lbs. Also you don't have to grind the lower a-frame for clearance on the 64-72 chevelle. $ 79.95 each.

What is the 10" hub orignally made for?
Is it a direct bolt on.

How well do they hold up compared to the other options?
