Default Mr2 rotors?

As far as I can tell the only difference between miatas front rotors and 99+ mr2 rotors is the overall depth. The overall depth is 1mm off according to autozones site. Napa shows that it's the same except the depth is 0.08" difference in height. Would the 1 mm or 0.08 affect anything if I use it on my miata?

I know it's a stupid question. Why not just run miata rotors? Push that aside and let me know if I could run this rotor without any issues.

The issue is the bolt pattern. Did you verify the center bore, and rotor braking surface area width is the same.

But really, why would you want to use a LIKE brake rotor when for probably the same price you can get the RIGHT brake rotor ?

I fail to see how the issue could be bolt pattern when both cars are 4x100.

He's just reiterating of obvious.

Why don't you try it out, it seems close enough that it would work.
Do it for science.

So just because someone has to ask: why are you doing this? I'm just curious, since miata rotors are uber cheap

I'm running a mr2 hub. My miata rotors don't want to sit flush on it.

Did you know that unless you lived in Japan ONLY, the 3rd gen MR2 is called just that? An MR2?


I'm sure Napa carries rotors and lists parts for a 1999 SW20 MR2. Not to mention in his original post, he said "99+ MR2."


Are you serious right now?

Yes I am SO serious right now

Sorry, I used to work for a shop that had a 99 Gen2 from Japan as the shop car.

But calm your ****, my point is still valid. Why get a LIKE brake rotor when you can get the rotor.

Because apparently he's running mr2 hubs.

Which is weird and I'd love to see a picture of it.

Got it. 99+ means "Gen2." Makes sense.


And your point is exactly what was explicitly asked in OP to ignore. So i'm with OP. I'm pretty sure you didn't read.

Well then, **** it. shim the pads or the caliper if everything else lines up.


I mean seriously 1mm shouldn't be enough of an issue if he's running MRS hubs.
