Default Have you installed aftermarket wheels?

I am about to order some Black Rhino wheels in 17x8, with 38mm offset (not the 52mm offset). I think I would rather do that than install wheel spacers. Will probably install BFG ATs in 275 width with either the 65% profile (31.1" dia) or 70% profile (32.2")

Does anyone have experience with these wheels or tire sizes on a 2019 Sprinter 4x4?

I understand these require longer lug bolts, which I have already ordered.

Thank you!

Id do the 65 and you may still need the agile fender trim.

I have 16x8 +25 with 33" and i still need to trim more

My plan is to do Van Compass 2" lift when it's available, or maybe some combination of Van Compass lift and Agile coil-overs, if that's possible. So, hoping to limit other mods for clearance until that gets done and i know what, if anything is required.

If a Transmission, engine or anything else related to the drive train or suspension components fail on a New Sprinter that has been altered with Over size tires, ect. Wonder if MB will tell you, warranty void.

Hmm,

My dealer told me today to bring my van in and they would mount balance and then reprogram my vans electronics or whatever so my active cruise and nav would still work.

For whatever it’s worth that’s what I’m being told. I’m gonna give it crack and see. I have no real reason to doubt them. I was very surprised today when I got the news, and very happy as I’ll loose my mind is I have to run wimpy 30.5’s forever..

One thing to be careful of with these New Sprinters. If anything fails or has issues from Transmissions to suspension to whatever MB can blame on alterations... Your warranty in that particular area my be voided. If work was performed by dealer then no worries.

Through my 35 plus years working for Toyota, Lexus, Honda and Acura. I have witness many warranty claims denied due to installation of certain aftermarket applications. Including certain over sized and or extreme offset wheel and tire packages.

For instance...Put a lift kit and go 4 sizes up on tires then your wheel bearings start growling, transmission fails or propeller shafts start going bad. Doubt very seriously MB will repair it under warranty
