A pair of motorsport-derived replacement rear discs.
If you have already upgraded front brakes, this Rear Disc Upgrade is the ideal compliment. Two-peice, motorsport inspired replacement discs, ventilated and grooved for improved heat dissipation and resistance to warping.
The RacingLine Rear Disc/Rotor Upgrade replaces the original rear ventilated discs with beautifully engineered motorsport-inspired 2 piece ventilated, grooved discs and aluminium bells (or top hats).
