My sister in law's Golf is up for new rotors (and pads) at 36K, VW consider them to be a consumable item. Not at $1100 they're not to me! :P

How long can we expect to get from Rolla rotors?

i have just done front pads at 100,000km's.... rears will get another 25.000km's travel...

nothing wrong with my rotors yet ;)

it all depends on the way you drive though doesnt it... i am all for fast acceleration.... but i am not a late braker or one for sitting too close to people, so all my braking is rather smooth and gentle..

my rotors didnt even look to need machining.... ;)

at nearly 40,000 km got new rotors all corners free parts and labour under warranty. the brake pads needed to be changed too but they were not covered under warranty and they cost $75 per pair. the old rotors were worn and had a reasonable lip. does anyone know why my brake caliper looks larger than other corollas?

You drive a South African model Corolla, brake materials were made of crap, literally...

On average, all 4 corners will be worn in 20,000kms...

As far as I can recall, under 25,000kms, pads and rotors are warranty, but in your case, 40,000kms is your average pad wear for an auto, so they won't be covered by warranty...

Your brake caliper looks different because they are different... Your rears are the same type of caliper as the front, whereas the jap version uses the slide in pads and pins to hold them in place...

Hope that helps you out...

:ph34r: On the topic of RoToRs for the Toyota Corolla Sportivo. :ph34r:

Front rotors are 275mm, Rear rotors are 279mm.

What are the part numbers to buy/replace new front and rear rotors in the forms of: -

Front - Slotted (Crossed) Only -> Manufacturers -> RBA, DBA, other?

Front - Slotted (Crossed) and Drilled -> Manufacturers -> RBA, DBA, other?

Rear - Slotted (Crossed) Only -> Manufacturers -> RBA, DBA, other?

Rear - Slotted (Crossed) and Drilled -> Manufacturers -> RBA, DBA, other?

Any part numbers available for front and rear braided brake line kits?

This information would be useful for Sportivo owners on this forum.

Cheers

rears are 279??

also crossed drilled rotors are just for show, slotted rotors will have better performance.

rears are 279??

Yep, rears are slightly larger in diameter.

wherever did u get that number from?

the last time i checked they were the same size as 1zz corollas. it's also the same size/dimension as the ZZT celicas, apart from the different PCD. 269mm x 9mm. the fronts for the 1zz are a 255mm. fronts for 2zz are 275 x 25mm.

RDA 7780 - 1zz front

RDA 7779 - 1zz/2zz rear

and if northy still has his stock rotors in the same box as when i gave them to him. he should find the part number for the celica rotors there as well. u just need to get them in blanks and drilled to 4x100.

Corolla Sportivo have different sized rotors (larger) to the other Corolla range. I have rang Toyota to confirm and have the following reference sites as well. Pre and Post facelift Corolla Sportivo RoToRs are the same size.

Would this mean that the Corolla Sportivo owners that upgraded there discs actually downgraded the size, based on the above information ..... oh my..... :o

dude, they are only larger at the front. me and pippy have taken the brakes apart to compare them between a 1zz and 2zz.

and think about it. if i used a smaller rotors, do u think the caliper would be working properly?

fine. go and find yourself a 279mm rear corolla rotor. and then come back and say the calipers don't fit.

just trying to point u in the right direction. lots of ppl have swapped their rear rotors on 269mm. no one has said/noticed ANYTHING about the stock rotor being bigger than the 269 x 9 that they ordered. if u park a 1zz next to a 2zz, u will see wat i mean. the whole world knows that the rear SS2 celica brake dimensions are the same as the 2zz,1zz,3zz,1nz rear corolla brake rotors. even the caliper and brake pads are the same. only difference is the PCD

http://au.toyotaownersclub.com/forums/inde...c=1921&hl=rotor

do u think endless will specify the same part number for their rear pads for the 1zz and 2zz runX/alleX/SS2 celica? and heck even the ZZE128 will vs

the rear brake discs on those cars are the same, apart from the 5 stud pcd on the celica. 1zz SS1 celica uses rear drums so they don't qualify on that list.

Each to there own, 10mm is very hard to detect, it has to be accurately measured, professionally. I will ring an additional two Toyota Dealers, and a brake specialist, tomorrow to confirm.

Therefore shaohaok, all three websites (two Aussie, one Sth African [home of the stivo]) mentioned above and the two dealers that I have rang so far are wrong?

well, find a spare rear stivo rotor and a rear levin rotor and put them next to each other or back to back. i've done it.

One thing looking them back-to-back and next to each other, another accurately measuring. As mentioned 10mm on a circle is hard to measure.

I will try to obtain the Toyota Factory Part Numbers for the Corolla Sportivo ZZE123R Front and Rear RoToRs and there specifications, such as size, via Toyota Parts.

if u stood them up and put them back to back, i'm sure u could see the difference in height. surely u can even feel a 10mm undulation. 10mm is like 1cm. it's quite a difference actually.

oh well, it's up to u to anyhow. good luck.
