Shimano XT RT86 Icetech Disc Brake Rotor (6-Bolt) (1) (160mm)
I bought 3 pairs of 160 Shimano Icetech rotors. They don't work on any of my previous brake types, Avid, Hayes, Promax, except one bike with Shimano M8000 hydraulics. The interior spider arms are much too large. If you adjust your calipers, you lose 3/8" to 1/2" of braking surface, making your brakes useless. Icetech rotors are also coated with chemicals that are carcinogenic, which Nashbar is suppose to tell you by law. Don't buy them.
