I'm sure I saw someone on here with the plus twos on stocks wheels awhile back (could be wrong). I'm just want to go to a different set of wheels. I also just dropped a few dollars atSexyLex said:They will fit w/ stock wheels right?
When I got them earlier, I started thinking about new wheels. I wonder what my lady will say about that.
This is what they will look like when installed. You cannot use a 17" stock wheel with a 14" rotor and Alcon calipers.SexyLex said::screwy: I need to control myself.

Whoa, whoa, whoa... I have to ask here: Are Lex's new REAR rotors a DIFFERENT, NEW STYLE with MORE HAT AREA and a REDUCED ROTOR AREA? They look different to me than the "original" (I say that not knowing if they've changed) two-piece E-speed rears.ScDFACHE said:

I have two-piece E-speed FRONTS on my car, but I opted against getting the two-piece rears when they came out because, like the ones shown in the link above, the stock pads only scrub HALF of the rotor surface (there's no contact with the rotor toward the hat, hence the inner half of the rotor is clean, and the outer half is sullied). These rotors were considered "for looks only," since they filled the rear wheels better, but half their surface wasn't even used. But Lex's look different.
I'm not saying that Lex's will WORK any better, but they, in my opinion, should LOOK a lot better, since it appears that the rotor area is now the same width as the stock rotor area, and it appears that the hats now extend out to take up the "unused" portion of the original 2-piece rears.
Can anyone verify that these rear rotors have changed in their design?
