Thanks man. Yeah that's where I'm stuck. I have a set of 16x7 silver desmond regamasters and I also have a set of TODA grandmechanicS rt 34's. But if I go with the toda wheels I'll have to go 114.3x4. that would be ok because, I could run 00 dc2r rear calipers and spoon twins with factory rotors from a prelude and an accord.no drilling rotors with that set up, it would just be bolt on. Check out my build thread I have all the wheel stuff in there.

damm looks clean , a 5 lug conversion with itr/ctr wheels would finish it off nicely.

You can run Spoon twins with the 2007 Mini Cooper S 4x100 rotors with no modifications, all bolt up Wink

Thx man, I've played with the idea of a five lug set-up my only problem is i have a new set of desmond regamasters and the TODA wheels that are the only set known to never have tires mounted to them and 1 of 4 sets known. both sets are 4 lug and i love both sets of wheels. i looking for a set of MF8's. the main reason i wanted a five lug was that i could run a s2000 size rotor with mono blocks and NSX rear brakes. she would stop on a dime.

the thing that got me with the mini rotor was the lug holes are huge. i know once the lugs were tight it would probably keep the rotor from shearing the lug studs. it just always made me uncomfortable. but the TODA wheels are 4x114.3 anyway so it would be bolt on with the prelude si vtec rotor and twin blocks. the rears i would be dc2r caliper with 93 CF4 accord rear rotors also 4x114.3 and a total bolt on OEM rotor set up. no botched rotor dill job. no Corrado or other than honda rotor.


both great idea fellas i still have a lot to figure out with the car. time and money, right?

No doubt. I'm currently running the Mini rotors on mine and have had no issues or movements. Hub bore keeps things in place. But you are correct being the wheel issue you are considering...lol.

yeah, I've always been scared of the mini rotor because of the hole being larger but, how many people do it with no horror stories. i know once you torque the wheels it would stop any movement. I'm just a factory freak. what caliper are you running?

beautiful. spoon calipers for the win. i was thinking when i go to the spoon brake set up and the dc2r rear set-up. that i should use a 1'' boosterless set up with a wilwood proportioning valve to adjust the bias on the fly.
