    dont quote me on this as I am going off memory but I do not know of a 15" rotor set for the vette. My 90 has the high performace brake package on it and it has 12" in the front and 14" in the rears. Now there may be a 15" kit out there that I am not aware of. your best bet is to ask at the corvette forum. http://www.corvetteforum.com/ go to the C4 techinical section and ask there. You will have to join but it is free.

    Use Brembo or Wilwood.

    Bring money! Lots of money!
    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.

    13.98 x 1.26 rear (steel) 14.96 x 1.5 rear (ceramic)

    If you use 13 inch rotors it will only look about an inch smaller at each side on the front and about 1/2 inch on the rear. rear wouldnt be noticable but, the front would be to someone who has the same car with the same rims
