Sorry I don't have the dimensions in millimeters at hand, but generally the rotors are referred to as 11" or 12"...in the '86/87 timeframe the rotors were enlarged and the calipers changed to accomodate. Dave

Thanks. Assuming an inch is 2.5 cm the diametre of the 12" must be 300mm, as on E500s.

I am trying to see if I can fit E500 4 pistons calipers on a 560. But I came to understand that E500 rotors are not vented (this is weird) so the E500 caliper may not be able to accomodate the thickness of the 560 rotors. Plus I don't know if the caliper fixing points would match...
