i have 15" at the mo but i am searching so hard to find a cheap set of gti alloys and is it worth doing a disk/drum conversion? and does it matter if i dont have abs? thanks

SLEEMAN can you get 15"s over them? :unsure:

 

without a doubt mate! you still using the finesse 7 spoke ones if so they should fit if not can always grind down a bit of metal on the calipers.

 

doesn't matter if you do or don't have abs, but abs usually reduces options with ford upgrades. as for rear conversion i wouldn't just yet, the best rear disc conversion is a focus rear disc conversion as that is all caliper brakes and no drums in site.

The brake calipers fitted to all V6 equipped mondeos (mk2s definately, mk1s maybe too???) are the exact same part as the calipers fitted to the escort and sierra cosworth 4x4s..So do yourself a favour and buy them from a scrappy that has a mk2 mondeo 2.5 V6 (non ST badged) on the yard, they'll want pittence, wheras if you try adn get some off something with a cosworth badge or even ST24/ST200 they'll ask a lot more. so go for a V6 ghia.. In fact...

Give that guy a message and ask him for the calipers (and if the pads in them have enough life left in them to chuck them in too)

 

I used that method and the guy only wanted £18 including postage for the pair! (not the same guy)

i paid £50 for mondy 2.5 callipers (the 887 & 888's) mondy grooved discs , ebc pads and hoses.

 

callipers had been refurbed 6 months prior and the discs and pads were new at the same time.
