Just front brakes

They put offset in no mans land.... Cebco retain stock offset, and have a fully floating rotor.

Thats why u specify which wheels u have so they can supply correct hubs for wheel offset, read listing.......


And if YOU read correctly it states the following;

"Hub is 20 mm out on standard offset each side and will fit with either original offset 7 inch wheels or with the AU2, AU3, BA or BF offset wheels. We also now have 28 mm out for the AU / BA offset wheels if they are wider than 8 inches."


"2 x Ford adaptor hubs made from K1045 billet steel complete with bearings, seals & half inch wheel studs"


So as it states you have to run hub adaptors (or fit an AU diff). Hub adaptors are illegal.
