I have been informed by Rotora that they do a brake kit for the Lotus Exige.

However the disc size is 330mm by 30mm and to me that seems too big for a 16" wheel.

Can someone confirm? Will the wheels need a spacer or something similar to make it fit?

They also said this is for 06 models > and I have an 05 model.

Thanks for the help.

Depend of the whell and caliper.

With my track wheel (SSR Type C), 15 inchs diameter, and the stock caliper, I measured that the maximum disc size is 305, that's mean that with 16 inchs, I should have 330. I am using at the moment 295 mm x 28 disc, with raybestos ST-43 pad, and I need to take special care to not lock the wheel at 125 mph.

But it is very tight, and the weight to balance the wheel can not be on the caliper zone.

Take special care, possible, but not sure, and the wheel selection can be very critical.

And why increasing the diamater that much?
