Default Q: Stern 17" Center Bore Diameter?

Q: Purchased a set of 17" Stern 3 piece wheels with 66.1 hub bore.
What is the correct size I need to have these centers machined to fit a Fox Saleen? Is it 70.0 exact?
I am just too lazy to remove the front wheel to measure the front rotor hub.
Please send help.

I put '03-'04 Mach 1 wheels on my stock svo rotors and the centers wereto small on the wheels by thousandths of an inch. I removed the rotor and the studs from the rotor and used a soft disc grinder around the rotor hub and basically shaved A very minimal amount off to make them fit right.
You may be able to do the same thing.

I measured a stock '91 5.0 rotor at 63mm.
Hope this helps.

The 4 lug rotor has a smaller snout. The 5 lug rotor has a larger hub. It's just shy of 70mm. 69.6 I believe. Quoting from memory there though. Most Ford OE wheels are 70.3-70.6mm hub bore. I've bored out the Stern's to 73mm so that there are no issues. Most of the Stern's I've owned with the hub's the correct size from Hinodex (Stern's parent company) were 72-73mm.

The guru has spoken. I would take the previous posters word s gospel. I have bought and sold and still own a few sets of sterns. Never without talking with him first. Merry Christmas Bob and all!

Will a 77mm hub bore work on the 87-93 Saleen?

Sorry, I put my reply in the wrong thread.

____________

Anyone know of a 25 mm hub centric wheel spacer for front 87 Saleen. All the ones for 94-14 that say should fit- do not (HRE Trak plus, American muscle generic billet ones). I was directed to Maximum Motorsports, but in the descriptions- it states specifically does not fit SVO/Lincoln fronts.

The center hub won't allow the spacer to sit flush against the rotor face/hub. [I have stock Brembo Lincoln/SVO replacement- not sure that could be the reason?]

I found some generic T6 ones on Ebay for Lincoln Mark VII and it seems that the hub opening is just a tad bigger, but since I wanted to see if there were any known options.

Mahalo in advance.

Finally found one that worked and clears the Mark VII/SVO large snout hub without modifications. The key is that the center bore not have an inner lip. If the center hub is smooth like this one, if will clear. https://www.amazon.com/UberTechnic-H.../dp/B00KTPE9S0
