R172 SLK55 AMG Brakes: With/Without P30
I love my 2014 SLK55 AMG. If I’m lucky enough to outlive it, or should I need to replace it, it will be with another R172 SLK55, definitely. At that time, I will strive to find one with the AMG Performance Package P30 option (my current AMG does not have it).
I’m having a set of wheels built for my car, and I’d like to have them built to fit my car now, as well as fit an R172 SLK55 AMG that HAS the P30 option. For me, this raises the following question, perhaps put different ways:
How are the R172 SLK55 AMG P30 brake calipers/rotors different than the standard R172 SLK55 AMG brake calipers/rotors? More to my point, how are they DIMENSIONALLY different?
Will R172 SLK55 AMG wheels fit equally well on cars with/without the P30 option?
Can any member share with me an R172 SLK55 AMG dimensioned cross-section view of their wheel/brake/rotor assemblies WITH the P30 option?
Similarly, can any member provide me an R172 SLK55 AMG dimensioned cross-section view of their wheel/brake/rotor assemblies WITHOUT the P30 option?
Many thanks in advance for a member (members?) to aid in my understanding.
