Default Rear rotors: R53=R56?

They have the same dimensions (294x10) but different part numbers. I know the R56 front rotors fit an R53 with JCW calipers, but those have a different part number from the R53 JCW rotors also. I ask because Stoptech makes a nice slotted rear that is listed for the R56, but I'm thinking it could work on my 04.

Anyone checked this out?

I am 99% sure the rear rotors are the same r53 and r56 calipers are different though for sure. Prolly the different # is because an older r53 has smaller lug nut holes

I finally ( sorry it took so long) got to ask Chadtoolio about this and here is his answer..........

---------------------------------------

Bingo, the lug bolt sizes....If you look at realoem.com, the rear brake rotor is the same part number for the late model R53 with the 14mm lug bolts and the R56.
