Re: The Legend GS brake swap information thread

I don't know anything about wheels. That sort of thing depends entirely on offset and other specs.

Apparently the AV6 rotors are 11.1 factory, I didn't know that. Roy is right on that use factory brake rotors.

Re: The Legend GS brake swap information thread

Great. So for V6s it's just a caliper and pad swap... sounds simple enough.

As to offset, it's +40, I have plenty of clearance for a 16'.
