Altered Sprinter, Thank you for the information on the wheels. I will talk to the Freight Liner Dealer about this but not sure if I can order this as an original OEM option in the US or I have to buy it later and change out the wheels. These wheels are nowhere to be seen on the sprinter ordering information. I will be visiting a Sprinter dealer in Denmark on friday and I will see what they have available over there. Anyone know if these wheels can be ordered as an original option in the US??

You cannot order them as an option with any Dodge or Sprinterdealer.
If you can find the MB Part number for the wheels you might be able to have a Mercedes Dealer order them for you.

Trying to find the correct and legal rim for a Sprinter, has to be a hard call, to say the least.
The information below was from a US site , this guy went to a lot of trouble to find the right rim for his van
NOTE: he did get it wrong on a local rim it's a 50 offset The AMG G wagen from Mercedes had as many problems with it as well.

However I thought this information was worthy to this thread to place this information.

If you find a alloy rim aftermarket please state the offset and weights that will also fit with out modifications.

NOTE: TIRES! Do not place tires in this thread, if they do not conform to the manufactures ratings of eight ply Keep the thread within the boundries of LEGAL

Hi, I am new here but I did not see the wheels I fitted on my 2007 MB Sprinter.
They are 19" Borbet TS with 255/55 R19 Michelin tires. I don't have a picture yet of my Sprinter with the wheels but here is one of only the rim.

It looks really nice on the van.

Not that it matters for your application, but are the tires E-rated?

The tyres are Michelin Synchro 255/55 R19 111H
The loadindex is more than enough for my Sprinter, I only needed 102

I'm curious... has anyone been succesful in installing a rim/tire combination to convert the 1-ton North American market NCV3 (that comes with the horrid "dualies") to the world-market "super-single" set-up?
