I have a 2006 158" SHC. I have a chance to buy 4 rims at a great price, but I am not sure if they are interchangeable. Mine is a Dodge, the rims are off of a M.B. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Brand doesnt matter. Year does. No, they will not fit. Any '02-'06 2500 rim will fit your van.

tony27,
You don't have a dual rear wheel 3500 series do you?
If so, the 2007-2014 3500 (5 series) wheels will fit, but you need to get a set of the later
captive/extended washer lug nuts.
I guess you could say if you have lug BOLTS the wheels will not fit.
If you have dual rear wheels and lug NUTS...they should fit just fine.

Roger, thanks for pointing that out. The NCV3 250 wheels are 6 bolt, right? But they arent interchangeable with the 3500 wheels, right?

Correct!
Only the early T1N 2500's had the 5 lugs AFAIK.
When they went to 16" wheels on the 2500's I think that's when they changed to 6 lug BOLTS.
The wheels are very different (2500 vs 3500) as the 3500 wheels have to fit both the front, and the rear with the outer wheel turned with the
offset facing in so they put the center of the 2 wheel assembly over the center of the full floating hub.
And, the 3500's have always used studs rather than lug bolts.
