18x7 cast iron brakes


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, just finished brake job on 58lbs rears with 18x7 brakes. Truck runs and drives great but brakes are getting expensive to change and cores are like gold. Truck was bought as a spare but cant seem to stop using it. Truck only gvw's at 60lbs on heavy day. Can you, or has anyone ever converted to 16.5 standard shoes and drums. Has dayton open spoke rims with 11 24.5 rubber. Thanks for any input on this.

Sorry for late response and thanks for commenting. Did find everything at Mack, shoes, drums and brake kits. $1600 for shoes and $1600 for drums. Mack was kind enough to wait for cores because they wanted $200 a shoe, A SHOE. stops good now tho. The shoes we took off where riveted, but mack did say that they used to sell just pads a bolt kit. It does stop good and seem to wear much better. Thanks
