Brake Question

Getting ready to do a brake job on my 1998 SLK, how do I tell if I need "1 hole" or "2 hole" pads, or is that on the rotors? Can I tell before I pull the wheels or do I need to pull the wheels to check. Thanks for the help and thanks for the great foum - wonderful data base!

Never heard of a 2 or 4 hole pad. J.C. Whitney has the Akebono's for you car. Here's the link. I just put these on my wife's 01 SLK 320.
