Has to be at least 16" wheels, or maybe grind a bit off the caliper?

Yeah they would fit as they are slightly smaller than cossie discs (5mm IIRC).

I have these:

Front:
STD Rs turbo calibers, greenstuff pads, sierra cosworth 2wd discs, braided hoses. I will sandblast & zinc front calibers too next winter.

Rear:
Sierra cosworth 2wd discs & calibers and std rs turbo brake bias valves properly adjusted, braided hoses.

Now i can say rs turbo has some kind of braking power and i can rely brakes. Stopping power is amazing compared to std items. Will fit under rs turbo standard wheels too.
