I think they're the same as my AMG wheels, ie 75mm

If you search on eBay.co.uk for "mercedes centre caps" you will get a good selection

EDIT: Measuring the OEM ones I took off (201 401 02 25) they appear to fit a 72mm hole, but have shoulders on the top edge that are 74mm. These shoulders fitted into the wheel, and did not quite produce the effect I was after.
Certainly, the new ones I got off eBay had a chrome star, and this was slightly larger than the OEM, and produced a nicer effect, so I'm happy the replacements were 75mm, and this is a good overall size for the centre caps.
Pictures of both attached.

See my edit of previous post; you were too quick!

I think the bore of the wheel is 72mm, but the outer diameter of the cap needs to be 75mm to fill the hole correctly.
