    Will my alloys allow for 302mm discs?

    On my wish list for my t5 is the 302mm brake disc conversion but I've read you can only do it with certain standard alloys. Are mine ok? I know they're not columba alloys but I have no idea what they are...

    i've got Columba's & Perfo's so can measure the inside diameter for you, if your diameter is the same/greater as the Perfo's then they'll fit

    it does depend on the wheel, they won't fit under 850 T-5 16"s

    The columba and perfo wheels could have been seperated at birth? lol I think you're spot on about persus ones, they look identical. Cheers lads. Inside diameter of the perfo's (I think they are the ones that take the bigger discs) would be brilliant if possible Thanks, Danny.

    Don't think you can fit 302 discs with these without modification. This accessories brouchure (http://vccs.volvocars.se/accessoriesLegacy/pdf/X70.pdf - page 873) has note for Persus:

    NOTE! Cannot be fitted to cars equipped with 16" front
    brakes (disc diam: 302 mm).

    just been out with the tape measure. Columba's has an internal diameter of a constant 14", while the Perfo's taper from 15" on the edge to 14" near the inner face of the wheel
