Hi everyone,
I have my set of 17" allow wheels from my Flint Grey metris that I replaced for another set. The tires have been used approximately 500 miles only and are in excellent shape. Right now, the wheels and Hankook tires are sitting in my garage and I don't foresee me going back to these... If you have a cargo version and want to do a "mini-upgrade" from the alloys, this could be an easy one.


Anyways, not trying to give them away, but if you're interested, PM me and maybe we can work something out.


Thanks!

Just curious to know what you replaced them with. I myself am looking to replace mines with something larger, better looking and with the correct load ratings.

I went with a brand called Rials. They look similar to the split spoke AMG wheels I have on my E class. Stuck with stock 17" tire set up... check the photo thread...I have it posted there.

If you have them when I finally do buy my Metris I may be interested, the one I am/will buy has the standard Steelie wheels...

I have a set of factory 17" alloys that I have sitting in storage ... I am in Orange County near the Irvine Spectrum .. I replaced them when the car had 5k on it ... Factory tires are Hanook ...

I heard from one person that 16" BF Goodrich Offroad tires on a Metris are great for those wanting to do a bit of off the beaten track driving. They are a tad smaller than the 17" currently sold for the metris.

I heard from a reliable source that 6" of ground clearance, a 126" wheelbase, and off roaring are not a good mix.

If you wanna do some off roading, I suggest a Unimog.

Sprinters have 16" wheels and you can get them in 4x4.

If you off road in your Metris I'd love to see those photos. ;)

I'm looking to do that on my cargo Metris, do you have more info on fitting BF off-road tires? Thanks

Have steel wheels, not really like them especially noisy Korean tires, wish to replace them on something stylish and comfort ones, any suggestions?
