Corolla wheel studs are longer. Idk what studs you found but I would like to know. Corolla brake swap kicks ass. I can easily lock my wheels up at 85+ and thats when my car was at factory weight. Now that Im almost 300lbs lighter its gonna be crazy.

Good ass find on the mazda rotor. I made my own spacers for the corolla drilled and slotted rotors I have and its been fine for over a year now with no problems. But if theres a direct fit than thats the way to go. If you get jy calipers rebuild them.



EDIT: Just saw your post about he wheel studs....good info as usual bro

so basically




thats 2 95 mx-3 rotors

and 2 93-97 corolla loaded calipers[L][R]

loaded means it comes with the bracket and the pads already attached

all for 147 dollars

not bad at all

I haven't had time to toss everything on with my new wheel spacers and extended wheel studs.

The setup I bough it off ebay, a hub centric 10mm spacer with the extended wheel studs. I just need to get off my ass and do it.:haha:

Also I had found a decent longer OEM wheel stud from a 2007 Toyota 4 runner (45mm I believe), but when looking at it in person it looked different, but my new extended wheel studs look to be the same as those. So they might fit and be a cheaper OEM replacement. I have a spare hub so I will try both of them and post my results.

Yeah, to a 35mm offset. Thanks (Fixed on post as well)

You don't need to run longer studs, but I needed to cause my OEM studs were at their max with my Miata rims.

Yeah, the 4runner ones will fit the Terseo hub. So anyone looking for a longer stud, you can pick these up from your local Autozone for 2 bucks each

OK i tried this rotor but this is what i found.

1. I had to grind the hub for the rotor to go all the way in. If you look at the hub, the round part had to be grinded.

2. Once the rotor is in, and the caliper braket is on, the rotor is not centered with the braket... the rotor is more to the rear and it rubs against the fitting kit for the brake pad (the shim that keeps the pad in place)

3. The backing plate has to be bent back and the studs holding it are too close to the rear of the rotor


This rotor was bought from O'reileys

I just re-read my posts and I did not say anything about the grinding:oops:. But yes I had to do that as well, my rotor went about half way on and I just had to hit the edged real quick with my grinder.


The rotor does not sit OEM center, I would say 2mm out more and it would sit perfect. But it cleared everything on my car and spun freely. I know people say a 3mm spacer is needed for the Corolla rotor to work and this rotor is 3mm less offset, So I wonder how the Corolla rotor sits?

I have been driving on my brake setup for a while now and have not had any issues.

IIRC, without the spacer the Corolla rotor hits the inner surface of the rotor on the caliper bracket. With the 3mm spacer it provides that amount of clearance b/w the aforementioned surfaces, and on the parts that I had at the time, centered ther rotor b/w the caliper bracket almost perfectly. I used a vernier caliper and did a dimensional stackup to arrive at 1/8" / 3mm. I do have a full steering knuckle off the car that I could quickly mock this back up and snap some pics.

I had read through that post and never remember seeing those pics in the middle of the thread.

So you said the absolute min clearance needed to make the Corolla rotor work was .095" (2.4mm) spacer. So I guess the MX-3 rotor is 3mm more offset because its close but there is clearance there already but I would persoanlly like 1-2mm more space.

Here is a graphic I made back when I was doing the number crunches to find a rotor to work.




So from the graphic to get the same backspacing as the OEM paseo setup you would want a 22mm rotor to have a 20.9mm offset.:dunno: That is 2mm more than my MX-3 rotor I'm using.:thumbup:
