    Unhappy 2005+ Acura RL brakes on 1995-1998 Odyssey?

    Hello, new member here from NC. Joined just to ask the question.

    As my username suggests this will be put on my '93 Vigor GS 5 speed.

    The concept; 5 lug swap + 2005+ RL Advics caliper upgrade. As a briefing, the 1995-1998 Odyssey bearings bolt onto the Vigor and 2.5TL knuckles (same part #'s) thus Odyssey Hubs do as well. Same bearing part #'s plus my friend has done it with success. Luckily the outboard axle spline count is the same for all 3 in question. For the rear the 3.2TL rear hubs and bearings swap onto the Vigor.

    So that's why I'm here. RA1 1995-1998 Odysseys are the only Hondas to my knowledge that offer the same bearing and hub boss design as the Vigor and 2.5TL (and 5th gen Accord) but in a 5x114.3 lug pattern making a 5 lug and captive rotor to hub-over-rotor swap all in one!! Yay! Thanks Honda!


    BUT


    My problem I'm running into is finding a rotor that fits over the Odyssey hubs I think? From what my friend told me when trying to put on the larger Nissan 5x114.3 12.6in x 28mm ~ 66.4mm bore rotor (unknown top hat dimensions) that are normally used on 64.1mm Honda center bore hubs with hub centric rings while doing the 2005 RL brake swap, they don't fit!

    Presumably because of the 1.) top hat size apparently wouldn't sit over the Odyssey Hub not allowing the rotor to slide down over the hub, 2.) (if it did fit) wouldn't the Center Bore stop the rotor and hub from butting up together flush?
    Odyssey = 70.1mm, Every other Honda = 64.1mm, Nissan used = 66.4mm.



    Well.... this website has 2001 RL rotors (center bore 64.1mm) on a 1995 Odyssey Hub. WTF. Aren't these hubs 70.3mm?? They didn't mention boring out the RL rotor to fit. So....?

    What exactly is the Odyssey hub sizes?

    One website says 64.1mm

    But another says 70.3mm





    Do other Honda rotors really work on the Odyssey? If so which?



    Remember I am specifically looking for 12.6in x 28mm rotors to use with 2005+
    RL Advics calipers and EBC yellow stuff and I have NO. PROBLEM going to aftermarket rotors. But I need to order them in the size I need for the original car they go on --"Odyssey Hub".

    If someone can post pictures of the odyssey hub or rotor with measurements of the top hat and center bore that would give me a better idea.



    I would appreciate any and all help available.

    Thanks!

    I have both RA1 ody and DC2 ITR (5x114.3 + same brake pad/caliper as ody) hubs/rotors/wheels at home. I can probably help out with measurements if i remember this weekend.
