Rear Brake Disc Diameter 1.6tdci

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Getting some new discs on the back ready for MOT.  What size do i need though?  My front discs were 278mm when i did them recently and the choice I have for rear (single disc) is 278mm or 265mm.  It's a 2008 1.6tdci Mk 2.5.

Thanks in Advance!

On the Focus MK2/Mk2.5 the 278 mm front disc brakes are combined with 265 mm rear disc brakes or rear drum brakes.

Yeah, its 265 on the rear, my conversion is perfectly setup now, slapping on 280s on the rear will bring too much brake bias to the rear, the danger being you end up locking the rears too early.  The carrier is also different for the 280s, the 265 carrier is a lot smaller
