Rear Brake Rotors

Does anyone know why no online retailer seems to have these and why I can't find a part number for them? Pep Boys doesnt carry them, Autozone only has one brand and its 60 bucks, and rock auto only has the economy for 16 bucks. Everyone seems to have the front rotors though, but no one has the rears.

Also, does anyone know the torque specs for the lug nuts on the aluminum rims?

I use plain Centric 120-series rotors on everything from my wife's car to my race car.

As far as torque specs go, I'm going to do what all my chemistry professors did when I asked questions that were already answered in the literature.

It's in the owner's manual. You'd be surprised what a useful resource that book is.

Aye but not as good a resource as this forum!!!

I’ve added all the brake service data to the pinned tech section and the folder marked “wheels and tyre (tires!)” shows the wheel nut torque - 80-108 ft/lbs.
sippffo and mainemanx like this.

Currently CX5 SportNav 2.2 diesel automatic and AWD.
Formerly CX3 SportNav 1.5 diesel automatic and AWD.
