Hello again this is my last question hopefully before I buy and fit the brakes and its this, will the 282mm set up fit inside the 15" alloy?

really not sure on thet one, iirc it's a very tight fit in the hairpins, so 15'' might be a bit small.

They will fit under SOME 15 inch alloys. The 7 spoke SEi type wheels fit. It is close though!

In order to fit they have to have a "flat face" to clear the calipers. If the face is curved back towards the centre of the car then chances are they won't fit.

The SEi alloys are VERY close. Some pillock when they balanced my wheels stuck the weights on the inside and they catch the caliper, so without weights there is about 3-5mm clearance!

I thought tyre fitters are genius's.

Would there be any chance if you've got your wheel off at some point be able to take a couple of measurements for me as a rough guide?

Does anyone happen to know the measurement from the highest point of the caliper to the middle of the hub?

Ok confused lol! i have a rover 214si bubble with solid discs i just want to know is there a vented disc that will fit straight on without changing calipers and carriers? I have seen these which quote they fit straight on
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3505168405...84.m1438.l2649.

My question is will the pads need to be sledge hammered into the calipers ?

No there isn't. you need to fit the calipers to match the vented discs as they are MUCH wider.

Trying to fit Vented discs into a non venter caliper would be like trying to fit a VCR inside a DVD player... But for the sake of 2 bolts and a trip to the scrappy, may aswell get some vented calipers so you can get the discs!

I myself will be doing the 262 conversion for when I get my 160 lump.

The 160 doesnt really need brakes that big I've been told... And the discs and pads are alot more expensive!

And my car doesnt have ABS so it comes down to my tyres too which arent that good atm...

And I have the rear hubs off a 1.8 25 just waiting on some brake lines and H/brake cables then I will fit the rears too

Cant wait!

With regards to a R25 diesel, if I wanted to put a set of drilled and groved 282 vented discs (for a ZR 160 off ebay), would I also need to change the calipers as well?
