OK, just need new rings. No problem. In fact, thicker and stronger stock! Or as you said, have the hats machined with smaller hub pattern
Thanks for the heads up.

so true, been a while since i've looked, i just remember them being the same specs from 04-06/07, just the bolt pattern being different.
im going with supra front rotors, not sure now on the rear.
IF you use the stock brakes only to change the hub size i have all the numbers appear to be bolt on, with rotors. im still waiting on my rear hub to show. problem is, i dont have wheels as these.
heads up on the rear hub, it will also be a 62mm hub....

So Steve, the front rotor you are using is the 296mm version? I think some lexus models share that rotor.

i will be using on my red car the supra, 323x30thick, with hub of 62, and hight of 50. the 205 brakes used a 315x32x55hub x 59 high. people are talking of using the 4.8, or what ever spacer. with the supra rotors, it will be easy. to do a brake job(in front only as of now. just get 96 tt supra pads and rotors without using spacers behind the rotor, and still clear ball joint.
THE SUPRA ROTOR WILL NOT WORK WITH THE 205 CALIPER EASILY!!!! MAKE THIS CLEAR AS GLASS
and as far as the rotor, have many options, just need the rear hub to show so i can order.
ill share my findings once this is done, i just dont want egg on my face.

Yeah, if your using the 323mm rotors, I am not sure how you can do this with out a caliper bracket with 205 calipers. 307mm is the tallest they can fit on the 185 spindle. That is one reason I am still kicking around the rav4 spindle since I can fit 330+ mm rotors.I am sorta leaning on smaller rotors to save on some unsprung weight. There is a good chance I am using svx rotors and getting the hub bored down to to suit their 58mm center bore.

i had a 344 rotor on there today, the talk of 330 rotor putting it into the "stock location" well...i did a REALLY quick mock up to see if with the 344 if it would allow....and it still doesnt, or if it does, it will be tight. im doing my caliper mounting 100% custom. like 'user666' idea. year your modifiing the caliper, BUT there wuold make more options as the caliper doesnt fit will stock anyways.
back to the hub project....lol

Are you using 205 pads or supra pads. I heard the supra pads might be thicker, but I have not been able to compare them. I have a new set of supra pads I will be using.

TubaSteve - 3-8-2012. the 5x114 front & rear hubs.
Sun Mar 11, 2012 1:44 am
check this out.....with stock brakes....well kinda, is 100% bolt on. ill hopefully put this into the "faq" section....
it has 06 tl wheels, with the stock brake calipers, and special(its going to blow your mind what rotors i used.

if this is fairly cheap and I can do this + the Porsche brake conversion then I can finally buy rims AND have a much easier time getting rotors. Please tell us soon!

I figured to keep conversation here so we did not clutter up the faq thread too much. I was looking at my rav4 spindles and my idea for the svx rotors will not work. Rather than making the hub ring thicker, they just moved it out further for the new center bore. I do not think there is enough material to machine it down for the svx center bore. So that ruines that idea for a simple rotor for me. If I could easily enlarge the center bore of the svx rotor to fit the rav4 hub, then that might be another option, but possibly more work than its worth.
EDIT: I was looking at the wrong hub number. The SVX is 58 where the rav4 is 62. Its really only 2mm coming down from the center bore from top then bottom. I measured the thickness of the ring on the hub and it is around 5.5mm thick. So I wonder if there would be any strength issues by making it only 3.5mm thick.

Searching on ebay, I may had found a possible rotor for the 205 setup.
Its from a honda pilot and some acura sedans.
The stud thickness is something else we need to compare.
Doing the conversion

I have several sets of those

If those work, they are super cheap rotors.
