    This basically. You will need brake discs, callipers, pads, carriers and brake hoses. Easily fits behind the 17" Avus rims with room to spare!

    I'll check mine tonight for you. You know you can always just buy spacers?

    it's not about the internal diameter mate, LCR brakes will go under just about any 17's in that respect.

    it's about the width clearence. high offset wheels like yours won't have a chance of fitting unless you're running big PCD adaptors. Mercs are 5x112 so I'm guessing you'll have 20-25mm adaptors, in which case they might fit.

    Best thing to do would be find someone local and friendly with LCR brakes and try a wheel from your car on theirs to see if it clears.

    saves you spending money on something that MIGHT not fit.
