ZX3 Brakes on a SVT? RallyX

Hello! I'm new here, this is my first post!

I just bought a 2004 SVT last week to replace my daily driver / rallycross Saturn ION! Here are some pictures of it in action!-

and heres the fleet-


The soft compound gravel tires that I use for RallyCross in the summer are 15"

It's my understanding that there are only two or three 15" wheels that will clear my SVT brakes- The problem is these wheels are far too wide to mount 15" rally tires on.

There are no 16" gravel tires- Sidewall is your friend

The solution, I think, is swapping stock ZX3 brakes with my SVT brakes- Then I can run a stock 15" wheel that clears the brakes AND is narrow enough for my gravel tires! Would ZX3 brakes work on my SVT? If so what would I need?

Thanks for the help!!
