Hi, i have a 1.2 corsa b and would like to fit some 1.6 brakes from a tigra as they are 20mm bigger, it looks like they fit but would like to from someone else aswell?

thanks

Yes, just make sure you get the caliper carriers as well.

That extra 20 mm aint going to give you any noticable braking performance, maybe it might keep the stuff cooler.. But all your doing is adding unsprung weight.

If i was you i would just invest in some good pads.

Ok cheers guys, its just as my discs are solid and worn to the max and the pads aren't far from that as well but there's a tigra with newish looking pads and vented discs with the callipers at my local breakers

The solid corsa discs are shocking. I remember a massive difference when I swapped mine.
