doesnt fit!
just stopped by the parts store, The ID of the rotor back side is to small by about 1/8".
Any other applications or part numbers to try??
Off course every thing we looked up in the parts book they were "out of stock"..

Thanks for the help!!!

Why don't you use the 2 piece rotor and hat so that you can get whatever offset you need?

Just curious.

Id love too. Rules say 1 piece cast rotors. Im thinking of running the cheap 2 piece rotors from speedway motors and not worring about it.. its one of those dumb rules that I think I'll just ignore...

Which one has the tin center? I think I have a couple but didn't know where they came from.

Thanks,
Dave

If you want it to fit over the drive plate you may have a problem. The drive plate is usually larger than the hub to back up the wheel. I am mounting a rotor by putting it on the back side of the hub and pressing the studs through the rorotr and the hub. Had to turn the center larger and drill the pattern but it worked.

Good luck,
Superdave

the roters that have the tin center are 95 jeep cherokee but they have to be take offs contact midas or a brake shop and have them save them for you they can be turned real thin
outher option is what superdave said I have done itboth ways

Those are some wacky rules. They allow a GN style floater but force you to use stock rotors. That's just weird.

For what its worth, I use the cheap Speedway ones and haven't had any trouble. I had one break last year, but the cause is still up for debate.

all wheel drive astro van rotors have a 5 on 5 pattern and a fairly deep offset.
