Could I put 256mm discs on where previously they had 270mm discs. Both sets apparently fit my car according to data info sites?

  • Only if the calipers and pads fit properly, otherwise you need to change them as well.

They're highly unlikely to be interchangeable, even if they are the same in the other dimensions 1.4 cm is a lot of diameter to lose and you'll end up with a corresponding amount of the brake pad not contacting anything - and that's even assuming that it doesn't cause other problems.
