Hi, I'm planning on uprating my front brakes for a recently done 2.0 Si, I have 15" zetec-s phase 2 alloys, what brakes can I get that will bolt on without to much modification other than drilling to bolt on. I was planning on using Fiesta ST/ST150 brakes, will they fit under 15's?
Thanks.

Yes they will, its commonly done under 15" wheels.

Big g1985 does (think he still does it) a 300mm brake set ground to fit under zetec s and gti alloys.

A mondeo servo is going to be the biggest factor in braking power. Find a mk1 mondeo in a scrappy, 4 feeds off the master cylinder and no abs.

Just that change alone will throw you through the windscreen.

Okay thanks guys, I will do the ST150 conversion knowing they will fit under my wheels. No spacing either? And will swap servo at a later date. Is it a straight swap?
Thanks

Plus I think ST150 brakes are 278mm if I remember rightly instead of 300mm lol. Just worried about spacing.

I did see that on your thread. But will ST150 fit without grinding?
