I'm going to answer your question about CB brakes, Stan. 

I didn't get them because I knew about three hub failures: a spyderclub dude who's name escapes me, Jack Crosby, and Cory Drake. And now yours, which makes me glad I stayed away.

I also wanted the front and rear to match looks and brand and function. So Airkewld. Yes, they are expensive. I could have gone CSP, but getting parts from Germany is less attractive than Arizona. $75 a rotor, front or rear. And CSP parts are pricy and you need to go through either Pierside Parts or direct from the fatherland $$$$$$$$.

I had my CSP solid rotor front/stock drums fade at 80 going into a corner and it scared the crap out of me. They make a vented rotor front, but it's a different hub and caliper bracket so completely new kit. And about as pricy(front or rear) as Airkewld or worse. The rears are 1500-1600, fronts around 1200-1300.

The coolest feature of Airkewld is that you can change the bolt pattern. Want 5 x 205 or 5 x 130? Yep, I can do that. 4 lugs you can't, but any 5 is possible.

I really like the 4 piston Wilwood in the front, and the availability of pretty much any pad you'd like.

I do wish there was a light caliper for the back with ebrake, but other than that, they work extremely well. It appears that all brands use the same rear caliper with ebrake...

Danny said he couldnt do black studs on thw wide 5 adaptors. For those of you who have his brakes - could a guy swap out the studs?

Ted,

if you find a longer 12mm stud that can be used in the CB wide 5 discs, please share the info.   I did not use the Vintage 190 wheels bc the CB studs are only about 1 inch long.  I am considering pressing them out and trying to replace with longer ones.  But, the new studs must have a similar spline and should diameter or they will not hold in the hub.  If you have ever had a pressed in stud spin in the hub, you know how much fun it is to remove!! 😡

 

I get all my lugnut parts from trackstuds.com.  They have a ton of stuff. I like Kevins parts, but the wide 5 adaptors are too flashy without the wheel skins. Airkewld has great stuff too, but the silver/gold lugs would look UGLY with my wheels.  So now Im stuck with the heavy parts from aircooled parts.

CSP are available from cip1 in Washington/Canada   Good prices when on sale, and quick shipping. 

As for studs I got longer ones for my daily driver when using a thin spacer to get them to work with my Erco bubble fronts..

also for longer studs on products I use dorman products along with saw products.

I get that, but I'm unconcerned. There's nothing wrong with Pete's brakes, but I'm not at all convinced they're any better than CB's (remember, I have both). The hub thing is pretty minimal (in my estimation) even if they failed regularly (which they don't). Needing to deal with Pete kind've evens out the whole thing, in my estimation.

The $2500 I estimated was through cip1. That's 2x CB's price.

Mine have been black powder-coated.

I like the idea of the air hose reel. I replaced the wheels and tires immediately.

I’m still waiting on the third one. I will cost $75 to redo, so I’m just getting it to have as a backup. No law saying that it can serve as a air hose reel for now :-)

Tom, where did you have your wheel repaired?  I think one of mine is bent and I can’t find a shop to work on it. Thanks
