Decided to go down and do some measuring tonight:

Looks like a 280mm rotor is about max with those big calipers inside that little 15x6 feather-weight Honda wheel.
Need to suss out the caliper mounting and an appropriate disk for it. 260-280x30 likely means I'll be using a blank and alloy hat. Or I could find some ordinary FC or FD ones that take 22mm disks to keep the weight down? AP do a 267x28 blank, or in the 280mm diameter it goes up to 25.4mm thick. Maybe I should find some 22mm calipers instead and save the big mitsu ones for something else. It'll depend on how the caliper can be mounted as to which diameter is most suitable. The above shot only shows the maximum outside placement of the caliper within the wheel, and not what it might attach to on the vehicle.
Once I know the disk arrangement then I can get some quality spacers/adaptors made up to mount the wheels and get some decent rubber under it.
Which will mean some sort of lowering job, or it'll look silly. Which will mean I put some thought into front-end suspension geometry and components. My how it snow-balls! :-)
