I did the st170 mondeo brake upgrade combo using the 300 mm st discs but I had to use 16' rims off a mondeo si to suit it that's the biggest and cheapest kit I know of hope this helps

Using 205 45 16 tyres on the five spoke mondeo si rims rolling radius nearly the same and handling good too

I looked at the ST170 300mm but I have bought brand new set of R888`s, I think I can get a reconditioned calipers + discs 278mm and pads all in for around £200. Its not as good as 300mm but much better than the 240mm I have, that are not stopping me, keeps boiling the brake fluid.

 

Many thanks Simon.

I have just fitted ST150 brakes. 278mm and a straight swap and able to keep my 15inch GTi wheels.  I upgraded from 260mm which did a good job so I hope these will be even better.

 

Look also into your brake compound as this makes a large difference

 

I get by with the standard 240mm brakes on my Escort and its wheezing 1.3 either.  I'm sure I'd appreciated bigger brakes if fitted them though.
