I'm fairly sure those rotors won't fit onto a stock wheel. The mounting bolts look to be on too small of a pattern. Something closer to the Ducati pattern.

I think they are 320mm. They look oversized because of the smaller bolt pattern, and the smaller wheel.

If you were building a replica and had the matching rear wheel, it's a good deal. For us normal people, it is a waste of money. It's also 16.5, that means slicks only.




I'm always right.

I was thinking tire sizing would be difficult to come across for the street...

Good point guys, I sent the guy a message for more info. This is some thing I do not have much knowledge on....thanks for correcting my dumbass.... LOL ...I did not want the wheel....I know about the 16.5 being slicks only....but I did not catch the rotor bolt spacing. It was late when I found it.... and I was tired after a long day running around with the family.

So I heard back from the owner of the wheel and rotors. He did not mention anything about the bolt spacing, so I sent another question to him. His first answer is below in blue. They are 320mm though. Good eye b.miller......good eye.

Thank you for the question. You are correct, they are 320mm HRC rotors by Brembo. I will let you know if i will be parting it out, and the pricing if the wheel does not sell. Thanks, and I will talk to you soon.

Regards,

Glenn

I think this isn't the first time I've seen that wheel on eBay before either. It's either the same guy has been trying to sell it for a long time, or guys keep buying it thinking they will use it and they don't/can't.




I'm always right.

This is why I am glad to be a member here, got somebody like you looking out for me....Lets see what his next reply says. My gut tells me your right though....the more I look at it , the more it looks like smaller bolt spacing.

The bolt circle looks the same as OEM (although unable to verify without measuring).
The rotors are narrow width, requiring matching calipers and pads to grip in the narrow friction area.
The rotors are probably 320mm, but because the wheel is 1/2" narrower, it gives the perspective of a larger rotor.
