Hi People , there have been some posts about people not knowing what way there disks should be fitted if they are driled and groved , or just groved , or just drilled. I have done some looking round the net to find some good info , along with these pic's to hope this helps , so when ever some one goes to fit some they have this info here to hand.

Nearside = pas side
Offside = driver side

Spotty Discs are directional "LEFT and RIGHT" which is nearside and offside of your vehicle. The spotted pattern and the sweeping grooves should be pointing to the rear of the vehicle.

So if you read all the above your discs should look like the last pic on this page , with the grooves facing the rear of the car , that pic is off a Golf R32 and its the front Pas :L

It depends on the manufacturer and particular disk design, some sweep forwards and some sweep backwards there is no one way that is correct for all disks. :eyesup:

i deal with black diamond and national auto parts and ebc

black diamond and national autopparts say the grooves should be sweeping towards the front of the car (the wrong way to some people) and ebc say theres should sweep towards the rear of the car

so is very much dependent on manufacture

Hi

Logic would be, for grooves in discs to wipe any crap towards outside of pad and throw it off rim of disc.
