Nissan R32 used light alloy 4-piston brake calipers, but the really big R32 OPTION brakes used huge cast iron calipers. 4-lug R32 used the same rotors as S13 Brakes while R32 turbo models used 5-lug rotors.



R32 is 1989-1994 Nissan Skyline (8905-9411).

Disc-over-hub brakes
4-lug: CA18I, RB20E/RB20DE and RB25DE
5-lug: RB20DET, RB26DETT
