Top 5 Wheels For Sprinter Vans

So, you’re looking to upgrade the look and offroad performance of your new Sprinter? One of the first upgrades we see people tackling after a roof rack and ladder is adding new wheels and tires to their rig. The stock wheels and tires are fine for around town, but they can lack the off-road performance many adventure van owners are looking for. 

Here are 5 of our favorite wheels for Sprinter vans, but there are many other great options out there. Looking for tire options? Check out our Top 5 Sprinter Tires here

Black Rhino Arsenal

There’s no doubt the Black Rhino Arsenal is one of the most popular wheel options out there for Sprinter vans. The Arsenal's rugged and tactical look made it super popular with the adventure van crowd and for a few good reasons.

First off, the Arsenal is designed for overland offroad adventures, and it’s built to accommodate the additional weight of a full Sprinter build. The Arsenal’s 38mm offset provides a considerably wider track that improves handling & aesthetics. The wheel itself features a modified tactical look, a unique Black Rhino cap in the center, and two different color schemes - Sand on Black, and Textured Matte Black.

Method Race 701 Wheels 

The trail-ready 701 wheels are a new design from Method that features Patent-pending Bead Grip® technology that engages the tire bead for increased grip at low tire pressures. The 701's aggressive inner safety hump design is borrowed from racing wheels and adapted to the trail. Long story short, this means you can air down on rough roads for a smoother ride with less worry.

The wheel itself is made from A356 Aluminum with T6 heat treatment, and it comes with a lifetime structural warranty. If you are looking to spice things up on the road and the trails, the 701 might be the wheel you are looking for. Check out the Bronze colorway if you want to stand out from the crowd of matte black wheels.

Black Rhino Havasu

The Black Rhino Havasu is an off-road-inspired beast of a 12-spoke wheel that also performs well on the street. This low-profile wheel only comes in one color option: Matte Black, but who really needs any other color?

The Havasu is rated at 3,300 pounds per wheel making it strong enough for even the most robust van builds out there. With an offset of 38mm, the Havasu will widen your vehicle's track and help with handling - not to mention, make it look a whole lot more aggressive.

Method Race 301's

The Method Race 301’s are probably the most timeless-looking wheel on the list. The subtle 10-spoke design gives the 301 a much more subdued look compared to most of the other wheels on this list and lots of people are looking for that.

The 301’s are made from solid A356 Aluminum and come with a lifetime structural warranty. A 50mm offset gives the 301’s a nice-looking stance that’s much more aggressive than the factory look.

Black Rhino York

Big and Bold! The Black Rhino York’s are a sporty and rugged wheel with 52mm of offset, and a weight rating of 2,700 pounds per wheel. The 6 spoke design and detailed outer lip make the York one of the most detailed wheels in the Black Rhino lineup.

Even though the Arsenal and Havasu are more popular in the conversion van space, we think the York deserves a second look before you pull the trigger on the aforementioned favorites.
