Welcome to the Forum, I hope other experienced wheel tech's/members are able to help you; because I am not that experienced with wheels & spacers.

Spacers will most likely fix the situation. The thinner the spacer, the safer/better. Just get one that will allow enough room to clear the brake caliper. H&R has spacers specifically made for MB (5X112). You can find them online. They are fairly inexpensive and worth the risk (in cost) if it doesn't work out. There's no harm in trying. Lastly, if they do work, switch to longer lug bolts to accomodate the thickness of the spacer.
