the madza 3 uses 10.5" (2.0 mazda3), 11.8" (2.3 mazda3), and 12.6" (mazda speed3) rotors. take your pick. i chose the 11.8 because they are same as svt and i had svt calipers and i couldnt afford the 12.6 mazda speed rotors/calipers.
so let me get this right. you use the mazda3 hubs in the focus knuckles?
MR. freaking negative
i'm not an enthusiast...... the internets told me.
