Dunno if anybody else has found this, but I found that a 1994 Ford B700 bus rotor has the same Bolt pattern and seemingly everything required to fit onto a rockwell hub:

Outer Diameter: 15.38 in.
Height: 6.02 in.
Hub Register: 6.44 in. (Reo's are like 6.40'sh right?)
Bolt Size: .844 in.
Bolt Circle: 6x8.75

You'd have to run the hubs flipped out, unless I find the same rotor that doesnt have the u-shaped hat. Not to mention you would also need a fair sized rim unless by chance (due to backspacing) the rim would not interfere. Anyone else looked into this at all?
