If you put 283 in a car that used to have 247, you may need to change the MC to prevent excessive brake travel, but a lot of people don't bother, 247-266 and 266-283 there is no need to change the MC

247 Will let you put any wheels on the car from 14" up
266 Will let you put almost any wheels on the car but Harries(14") scrape on the calipers
283 Needs 15" alloys

Then you can go up to 330 brembo's off the 406 coupe, but you only really need them if you're going up to SC-6 Standards

very helpfull thanks simon, need to get some bigger wheels then first mines on standard 14"

i have 2 sets of 15s for sale Laughing
