Default Trying to find rotors

I have a 87 D21, and managed to get my hands on some R32 GTR front calipers, and have had absolutely zero luck finding a rotor that fits correctly (291mm). The largest I've been able to find that will bolt on to the stock type spindle is 276mm. Has anyone ever done the GTR swap? If so, what did it take to make it functional?

*edit for a status update*
I ordered the 276mm v6 4x4 D21 rotors, and despite what I was able to find online, they don't fit my stock hubs (rear drive Z24 XE). So now I'm looking at upgrading the hubs (if possible to something I can get a bit closer to that magic 291mm rotor diameter). But still want to maintain the OEM bolt pattern and hub bore. What's out there that would work for that? I'd spend more time looking up the info myself, but have almost no free time lately.

Those are 4x4 rotors, which have a larger hub pattern - you'll need 2wd rotors. Do you have a Napa close by? Their ATM 0940740 is a Brembo 276mm rotor, but they may not be able to get due to being discontinued.
