View Full Version : hub rings who makes them
24-06-12, 06:02 PM
anyone know who supplies hub rings out of alloy ,
im after 4 rings with these sizes ID is 70.2mm and OD is 71.75mm
Just get someone with a lathe to turn them up.
Would be pretty easy.
They're going to be some thin ass rings....
not needed in that circumstance imho
This seems to be one of those questions that nobody has a good answer for.
I recently ordered another plastic set from Ebay but its very hard to find metal ones in specific sizes. The polymeric ones that came with my wheels don't like track day temps very much so i've taken to replacing them, but ideally want a stainless steel set at 67.1mm inner and 72.6mm outer.
Find a good maching shop near by and get them made.
I made some for hoonboy ages ago to adapt the disk onto the hub and then onto the wheel.
I even put in dust caps for him.
From memory it was only a few $$$
They are only like $30 on egay. Just buy some of them and get a machine shop to modify them.
Eg buy the right size inside and get the outside turned down or buy the right size outside and get the inside bored out.
I would probably charge around $50 to setup tooling and do the job.
well those where 2.25mm in section, the OP is asking for .775 , confident you can machine those up ?
Ive done some 0.65mm in section. Pain in the arse and not required unless there is a definite problem IMHO.
I had some made for my Supra to fit 350Z 324mm rotors which have a larger centre bore.
I would get the bore machined out a touch so that you can run thicker spacers for a more definite result. Too easy for 0.7mm ones to crack, break, deform, whatever IMO.

i pick the new brake setup next weekend , so i'll check it out when it mounted back on the car ,and with my wheels on it and see what there like , maybe buying a set off ebay and getting them turned down might be easier
hang on - so your hubs are getting hot enough at the track to melt the plastic ones?
Not quite melted as such, one of them ended up quite badly warped at my last track day. I think I fucked it up a little when I fitted it in the morning but now I have one that's not really usable anymore.
Not surprising they get hot with single piece rotors and rings that sit flush on the hat.
Why not get different disks that fit if your upgrading brakes??
