All 16inch wheels will accept 12 3/8 and some will accept 12 1/2 inch at maximum.
To fit 13 inch rotors, you will need 17 inch wheels.
One of my good friend had to go to Forgeline 17 inch wheels to accept 13 inch rotors. Her car is prepared by ERT, they know what they do.

Even Jeff Ireland told me the same thing. Another problem you might encounter is the clearance for the caliper. Depending on your choice of caliper, you may need a clearance of 2 1/8 inch or more between the face of the rotor and the branches of the rim.
