It's all about heat management folks. Brakes rely on friction, and friction makes for lots of heat. At 18 lbs, these heavy duty South African drums are roughly 30% heavier than the originals. This extra mass allows for greater thermal absorption which translates into less brake fade and quicker stops—not to mention longer life and increased resistance to warping.
Sold each. Two (2) required per vehicle.
Fit Notes: The face of these drums are a bit thicker than the originals; therefore, you will have less stud-to-fastener thread engagement when mounting your wheels. At 8mm of available thread (5-6 turns), the strength of the stud itself is exceeded (meaning that 5-6 rotations is plenty!), but if you want the original amount of engagement, longer studs are required. 56mm replacement studs are sold separately below. Ten (10) required per vehicle.
Note for GoWesty alloy wheels: If you are going to use this brake drum with any GW alloy wheel, you will need to purchase longer studs (56mm), sold separately below.
