And here are the Method Standards w/ 245-70-17.

Had three different mechanics advise against going up to 265 tires.

Those wheels look great! Did the mechanics you asked state anything specific about why not to go up to 265?

On my previous Sprinter I had 255/55R19 No problem only when I fully turn the steering wheel. On my new Sprinter I want to try 265/50R19

Default how big is too big?

On a 07 with standard or close to standard offset and width wheels:

32" outside diameter tires rub lightly @ full lock on the rear of the inner plastic wheel liner.

This seems like a reasonable limit, 4 wheel drive and T1n"s will differ.

265's work. Changed 265's after 38,000 miles on original Continentals. Drove approx. 20,000 on 265 Michelins before I sold Sprinter. No problems, no rubbing.

I am thinking about picking up a 2500, 170 WB, high roof and doing a conversion.

It looks like the 2500 is going to be "just barely enough GVW.

Is there a way to put an equivalent tire setup to the 3500 super single?

Thanks

just got my 2014 sprinter. For people upgraded to 19" wheels, what tires on the market can be used? Load Rating D or E tires needed ?

Here's a nice set of 18s. Specifically designed for this sprinter.

I ordered a set of these wheels, I'm just curious as to what other people are running for 18s. Because I now need a set of tires.

A few photos of the new wheels, just need to get some rubber for them. They are much nicer than what a picture does justice.
