Default V60 Rear Discs

As i found the rear discs on the Polestar V60 a bit small in the 20" rims I looked at options for getting them larger. Looked at the Rotora ones bit didnt want to mess with the calipers. After speaking to a company in the Uk I had some 350mm two piece discs made to match the front ones.


I had them made with 8mm less offset than the standard ones to allow for a caliper mounting bracket. I machined a bracket up ready for the swap.



So yesterday I finnaly got round to fitting them. Really happy with how they look and they do work really well. Im going to make some new brackets as there was a couple of bits I can improve on. But overall I,m pleased with the job. Had to make a tiny mod to the mounting point on the car but nothing drastic.
