I only did a quick search on google
"hubcentric rings"
There seems to be heaps of companies out there that do this, i am bit skeptical of rings made of plastic aswell but i am sure there should be more companies out there that make rings from steel or aluminium alloy

No you need 2008 GL450 rotors for those calipers

The brakes have been installed since mid september, they bolted right up with the parts listed with minimal effort. You have to do a little grinding on the caliper and control arm because they touch at full lock, when you test fit them turn to full lock and you will see where.

The braking force is phenomenal and immediate, I also installed a 328mm Brembo 4 piston rear kit to compliment the fronts and they are wonderful. Very modular, light pressure gets light braking heavier you go the harder they stop.

The rear kit was used and the caliper hung off the rotor quite a bit when I received them, I threw the brackets on a milling machine and relocated the mounting points 10mm to get the caliper to sit correctly.

Great work there, this kit sounds like one of the better DIY budget kits out there

Super old thread bump. I ended up using the 17z setup mentioned here with all correct hardware and hub rings. I'm having an issue with the rotors. They are ML350 rotors but they contact the ball joint and outer pad stop pins in the caliper. I for the life of me cannot figure out what the issue is, it's as if the rotors are just too thick since there's no way to move them inboard or outboard on the hub and it's contacting on both sides. Anyone have any ideas!? Any help will be appreciated.
