Dimensions of disc brake rotors

Does anyone know of a catalog, chart, or listings of dimensions for replacement disc brake rotors? Rather than go the route of rotor hats and rotors, would like to find some cast rotors close to the dimensions I need, and then make caliper adapters to fit.


Would be looking for rotor OD, rotor thickness, and offset or a relative dimension from the hub mounting face.

Thanks in advance.

I have a copy of a Raybestos master reference guide , and it shows all of those dimensions and the rotors are listed by part number, instead of application.

I got,(finagled ),my copy from my local brake parts supplier,(wholesale house, supplying to stores and shops), you may find that your local old school auto parts store has a copy in the basement somewhere..Brng them some coffee and donuts and they may let you sit at the end of the counter with it for a while.


I have attempted to go that route with building a brake system,, and found that getting hats and rotors saves a ton of time.


Coleman racing as well as wilwood has some cast rotors that are listed by dimension also, and you can buy their hats to make pretty much any offset or bolt pattern you need.


The Coleman racing stuff is priced better than the wilwood stuff.

Later, mikey
