Just so you know, the standard rear rotors for VT - VZ are (Brand Prefix)041 which are 286mm Dia, 16mm thickness and are solid rotors. An upgrade for VT-VZ would be (Brand Prefix)049 - 315mm Dia, 18mm vented.

The ones above are the vented rears from the VZ monaro range. Quite a good upgrade for the price. Buy time you get rotors and pads you would be looking at similar dollars to the above kit, which comes with new calipers and braided lines.
I have purchased brake kits from Tony (Mr-Spares) before, he always does a good deal.

I never said they were a different size. These are vented tho, yours are solid.
