Are these the brake adapters I need?

I am not the best at reading Shimano disc brake adapter part numbers...

I need adapters that will allow post mount brakes to fit on an IS mount frame/fork, with 160mm rotors. Are these it?

Shimano Disc Brake Adapters
160mm / 74mm / Front / 51mm IS / SM-MA-F160P/S

Shimano Disc Brake Adapters
160mm / 74mm / Rear / 51mm IS / ISMMAR160PSA

Both from this listing at Universal Cycles: https://www.universalcycles.com/shop...s.php?id=18669

The Seller has someone standing by online to answer that question,

about their products , and an 800 number to talk to them on your Phone.

As Said before ,, to put a 160 disc on both ends of a Bike ..

as Marked , The same adapter fit is 1 size smaller fitted on the back.

so 140/160 goes on front ; a 160/180 goes on the rear. ie, 2 different size adapters.

[All disc calipers are Post Mount ] if you are buying Shimano Calipers I dont see an issue.

but talk to the seller, if insecure.
