15" or 16" wheels and what diam rotors?

i've seen plenty of pics and threads regarding larger wheels, but not a lot about the optimum brake setups to accommodate those larger wheel combos.
i'm currently running SSBC 11-1/4" front disc brake setup with stock rear drums and 15x7 steelies.
P215 60R 15 tires front, P225 60R 15 in the rear.
i'm looking at Torque D's either 15 x 7 or 16 x8's. i know the 16x8's give more bs and i can run a 245 rear tire and probably a 225 up front. i also have a front end drop about 1-1/2" with cut coils.

but what would be recommended front brake rotor diameter for 16"s? i know 17"s would require about 13" rotor.
