Thanks, I'll post a link to your page from mine. I really like to add different sites to refer to from mine. It gives a different perspective and I think you had different problems than some others have had.

Question.
Is the 12" late vette rotor really 12" or slightly smaller.
Also the 13" rotor, is it really 13"?
I'd also like to know the backside offset from hub inside face to rotor inside face for both if anyone can post that here. Maybe we can clear up any differences between the rotors.

The 13" rotor is exaclty 13" in diameter. I'm not sure what you are asking about on the offset though

It would be like measuring wheel offset. Measure from hub to rotor face on the spindle side of the rotor.

David, if you are asking like measuring backspacing for the rotor, it is 1 15/16 deep from where hub sits to the inside of the rotor.

Another question for you tho. In order to fit the hub to the rotor I had to grind or cut the ourside of the hub very little. Is that make the hub out of balance? If it is where can I get it balanced?
Thanks

Yes, that's it, thanks.

I wouldn't worry about the balance. The hubs aren't balanced anyway. There are no balance pads or drilling on them and the closeness to the hub center doesn't affect the balance much.
