SLK 230 AMG Brake and Rotor Size ?

Hi,

I have a 1998 SLK 230, AMG model. It came equipped with 17" AMG wheels.

Does anyone know whether the brake components eg. brake pads, rotors, etc. would be identical in size as the 16" wheel version of the SLK 230, or different sizes altogether ?

Many thanks in advance for the replies.

My 230 has 17" AMG wheels & no brake upgrade. I would be very surprised if you had, never seen a 200/230 with it!

Thanks for the reply, cockneyrick. How does a cockney end up in the mid/North ?

This Canuck has actually been to Crewe. Toured a Rolls Royce facility years ago. I enjoyed Cheshire.

Can anyone else confirm the brake pad/rotor size ?
