    confused Grooved Disc Front & Rear - Which direction?

    Hi guys,

    My pads were worn and so were my discs so I decided to uprate my 2.0T braking power by using some grooved discs.

    I have got them on the car now and have tried to find a definitive answer if they are the right way round but can't ... so please take a look at these pictures and let me know if they are the correct way around.

    TIA

    Alistair

    Front is correct, swap the rear ones over.

    I fitted a set of black diamond disks years ago, it said in the instructions that it depended on the amount of grooves the disks had.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    As a rule of thumb go with the direction of the wheel rotation. As mentioned only the rears need changed.
