15 inch wheels definitely fit ST24 early version calipers and discs. They're on my car atm.

If you do the early mk1 mondeo v6 brakes with those discs you will need hub/disc spacers

Yeah with the 15 inch escort SI wheels you need 3mm behind the disc and another 5 behind the wheel! Longer studs needed.

escort cosworth brakes
or the easiest is fiesta st brakes straight bolt on both 280mm
depending on what wheels you have you can run 300mm brakes

Doesn't matter what wheels you run you will need to have thoese 3mm disc spacers as the mondeo discs are 3mm different in ofset to the fiesta discs, escort rs2000 5 spoke wheels fit over them fine without longer studs or any wheel spacers, it's a tight fit with only 2-3mm between the spokes and the caliper but fits nicely
