Cause I want to leave my 15's on. And the standard au2 brakes are the biggest you can fit in a 15, plus it's still getting larger rotor's and twin piston calipers over single piston.

not quite, the std au rotor is the same diameter as e series(287mm), it just has twin piston calipers.

Really? I thought they were 297mm and I also thought the e series were smaller, mind you I never looked into it just assumed lol. In that case, yeah no point in upgrading anything except maybe the caliper alone.

That would of been over the 330mm brakes though. I'd rather stick to 15's then have big brakes, but I'm weird like that :)

I tried to fit on a el xr6 16" rim. I reckon if I grinded the fins flat on the caliper it would fit .
I was only curious to see so I didn't bother making them fit .

AUII/III use a 16'' wheel so I doubt that a 15" wheel will clear. AU alloys had the clearance for the larger calipers.
