The 93-97 Camaro rotor also fits the Bonneville from 92-99 (including SSEI). That part number is 8250 PSL and 8250 PSR.

right, but to me he said 92-96 bonneville but it doesnt matter i guess they got more than 1 model fitting the cars since bonneville99 said that he got 8257 and it fit fine BUT (did you need any fitting because i recall someone telling me fitting was requiered.

I haven't done mine yet.. but I did email Eric from Powerslot, and that was his reply. I'm still trying to find a place in Canada that would sell it for under $300 Canadian per pair. On the email, Eric also said that it would just simply slide in without any modification. I didn't know there was a thickness difference.

His answer:"92-99 IS THE SAME... 2000-2002 IS A DIFFERENT WIDTH..."

EB

original question: "is the width of the rotor the same as the stock size?
i am aware that there is a difference in the width of
the rotors in various years"

So what is the deal with the powerslots what is special about them?

I have thought about going with the thrasher 12 inch rotors but that would mean getting a 16 inch or larger rim. I am planning to do that anyway but I wanted to use the 16 inch wire rims off the Grand Prixs and those won't work with the 12 inch rotors.

Once again... I repeat, no fitting was required on my car, it just bolted on like a normal OEM rotor.

I am going to be a test I am buying the powerslots for my 1995 and we will see what happens. What were the pads that were best? I will take some before and after to compare dust and all the rest. And I hope to sell their product. We will see.
