-Eugene_,
You can get the OEM quality rotors at your dodge or Mercedes benz dealer.
Just take your VIN # to them and you will get the same rotors and pads that came on your Sprinter when it was
built in Germany.
Send me your VIN # and a valid return email address and I may be able to give you the OEM Dodge/Freightliner/
Mercedes Benz part numbers.
Or, you can try EuroParts-SD .ccom
They have both the fronts and rears, and may be able to sort out which you need based on your VIN.

Hope this helps,
Roger

They do. Call them and ask. The photo is of the 2500 set.

The photo is representative of the item, not an exact picture. I order both the front and rear rotors from them last fall for my 2004 3500 (6 lug). If you're still not convinced call them. http://europarts-sd.com/

The 2007-2011 3500`s are all 6 lugs on the picture though. Does 15" or 16" make a difference?

Don't go by the photo. Call or email them. They are very knowledgeable and have been faithfully serving Sprinter owners for years. There is even a Europarts Appreciation Thread here on the forum.
15" and 16" refer to the wheel size. Both sizes came on the 3500, but I know they are interchangeable. That makes me think that the brake disks are the same, but again, just call them. They can answer all your questions. Or you can email them, too.

What I think most missed here is that the T1N 3500 uses 5-hole front rotors - there is a huge adaptor flange that bolts over the brake disc and to the hub with five bolts, this flange then has the six wheel studs mounted in it. There is no 6-hole disc. The rear has 6 holes.

That is an interesting piece of information. I would have never thought that.
