I would believe that this determines which go in the front verses the rear but why is this?
Front and rear rotors are not identical - they have the same diameter but not the same thickness. The front rotor is a floating rotor whereas the rear rotor is hard mounted to the hat (rear hat has the brake drum for the parking brake shoes).

Thank you for the explanation. I knew there was a reason, why do the drilled holes look different in diameter?

They are different in diameter. The hole patterns also are different - front has four holes, the rear alternates between four and three holes. I don't have a Brembo BBK so I don't know if they have other rear rotor options but my guess is the front-rear designs are just different.

I did not even notice the 3 and 4 hole pattern. That in itself explains the difference in diameter. Thanks again!

I am out of the running or maybe I was never in the running . OP has failed to get in touch with me for two days and I have had those two days to think about this. For what it is I think the price is high considering you will need new front pads and not knowing how much life is left in the rotors it may be better off purchase a new set in the color I want anyhow. If I had have purchased these I would have repainted them to begin with.

I wish the OP the best on selling these. The color is definatly not the color of my choice but it will be for someone out there.

I think I offended the OP with my offer price and that may be why I am not getting any replies anymore. If I offended you in any way I am SORRY but we are all allowed to make offers on what we think something is worth. If you had have PM'd me back we may have been able to work something out.
