Already have 200mm discs on the tandem. But the largest caliper fit I could get for the rear was 180. I made up an adaptor to allow me to run the 200mm's and it has been on for 3 years now, Whether I would trust one on the front is a different matter- but get in touch with the brake manufacturer to see if they make one.
Another point- 180 or 200 mm on the front- definitely think of a bolt through axle. Then again the forks- will they take the stress that even a 180 will put it through? And even better- will the headtube be strong enough on the bike? Even better still- why do you need such large disc's?
