front brakes 98 sl500

i have a 98 sl500. I got a set of miro rims that fit with no issues on back but front hit the brake calipers! Need HELP on finding a thinner caliper and if i have to change the rotors so be it but please help. I tried a spacer too and the rims still hits calipers.

You should always check the diameter and ET of any replacement wheels!

What is the diameter and ET of these Miro wheels?

Smaller calipers are not an option on such a powerful car, and too wider spacers will stress the steering joints.

EDIT: looking at the Miró website, none of their wheels were ever produced for the R129 models. I think that you'll have to try and sell them on.

No trees were harmed creating this message, however some electrons were very inconvenienced.
