I agree that you have better options out there, but if he doesn't want to
replace the strut towers, I assumed he will not replace the wheels with 16"
ones. I don't think there is an option with Brembo/ATP that fits 15" wheels,
does it?

I think with the right pads/rotors, like your combination, some cooling ducts and
lots of dust, that he probably can live with, is a good option..
