Rotor smaller then caliper

I just got some 4 pot Brembo calipers from a Mercedes s430 for $45 in the junkyard. The problem is that they take a rotor that is 330mmx32mm but from what I can find, our rotors are 298mm in front. I would just buy bigger rotors but I just bought these drilled/slotted ones. Can I get away with using the smaller rotors or do I need to just buy bigger ones?

Bigger ones. It's the breaks that's something you don't want to cut edges on...

Basically Stock

30mm sounds like enough that the pads would wear out on a crazy angle, wouldn't seat right, and would get really hot. On top of that, they'd be at risk of cracking, as well as they could bind up.

With that, you'd probably also have strongly reduced braking compared to stock
