The 30mm discs should fit OK, they will just take a bit more squeezing in the first place! It just means the pistons will be pushed back 1mm either side further than with standard discs, no problem really. Benefit will be better heat dissipation so braking will improve a little.

Hmm, just checked the specs and the R33 Gt-R should have the 30mm discs anyway..full spec below:

324 x 53.75 x 30 x 68 x 5 stud for R33 GT-R's 1/1995>

This is the same as the R32 GT-R 8/1993 - 12/1994 which also has the same 324 x 53.75 x 30 x 68 x 5 stud


The other options are from the 350Z 2003>, 324 x 49 x 30 x 68 x 5 stud..

There is no 28mm thick disc listed for Skylines..though of course that is the specified minimum thickness, relating of course to worn discs.

So the only real issue is to make sure you get the 53.75mm overall depth discs not the 49mm.

I would guess thats a R32 V-Spec, (would also tie up better with the dates), as that came with Brembos, normal R32 GTR brakes are smaller than R33/34 ones.
