Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. my sprinter is a 2007 med. wheelbase high roof. The tires on my sprinter are Michlien ltx a/s ct225/75 r16. Absolutely worthless in the snow or light granular ice. I have approx. 16k on the vehichle and can guarantee you that the selling dealership, Lee dodge of commack ny would not even entertain any request to change these tires. I'm having trouble with both the dealership and dodge customer care ( all I hear is that this is an internal matter and I may or not hear back from anyone) to replace a broken switch that controls the interior wall lights from the rear double doors.

How much are you paying at the pump. Here in michigan it went from 259.9 to 299.9 almost over night. The highest I have seen it 313.9. Yikes, What is it in your state. Tom

I agree with the dealer problems... these customer service problems are like a plague on the brand...
My dealer in OKC, Oklahoma is likely to be removed from 5-Star and Sprinter Dealer status very soon, leaving just about NO ONE to do warranty work in the entire central Oklahoma area!
I plan to start using a Mercedes shop as soon as the warranty is out (local non-factory MB shop).
PS, check out the Bridgestone Bilzzaks for the Sprinter they really do look great for the application, including bad weather driving.

I have an 04 3500 with a harbor utility body. The 15" tires (195 vanco) apear as tinny doughnuts beneath my truck. Anybody gone to a much bigger tire? Problems? I may have 7 or 8 (one completly new) tires to get rid of without the 4 week lead time..(I went through that too!). Also I live where there is snow..(Iowa) any luck with the Blizzak line?
I have had lots of dealer problems too! I don't think I will go there if there is any possible way around them. Thanks for this forum..big help.

#26 of 58 Chrome Plating Factory Aluminum Wheels
Jul 21, 2007 (8:51 pm)
When my '08 Sprinter shows up with the factory aluminum wheels I plan on sending them to SoCal to get plated. The going rate is $125 per wheel (anything 17" or smaller) plus freight. Has anyone had this done or for that matter, has anyone ordered these wheels from the factory?
