Sprinter FAQ

Get that great ride!

Like many owners of conversion vans, we’ve noticed how dramatically the ride quality of the stock suspension diminishes once you build your rig out and load it with equipment. We’ve solved these problems before, and our new Mercedes-Benz Ride Improvement Package (RIP Kit for short) now solves it for our beloved Sprinter owners.

Agile Off Road is here to answer your Mercedes-Benz Sprinter questions! Feel free to submit new questions in the comments below!

FAQ

What is the largest tire I can fit on a 2007-2018 (NCV3) Mercedes Sprinter?

The largest recommended tires sizes for the second generation (2007-2018) Mercedes Sprinter are:

  • 2WD Sprinter 2500: 265/70-R17
  • 4×4 Sprinter 2500: 275/70-R17
  • 2WD Sprinter 3500: 235/85-R16
  • 4×4 Sprinter 3500: 235/85-R16

What is the largest tire I can fit on a 2019+ (VS30) Mercedes Sprinter?

With a factory offset wheel (50-54mm) a 2019+ 2WD Sprinter 2500 can safely run 245/70-R17 tires without fender modification. With the installation of Agile Mini-Fenders 265/70-R17 tires fit any Sprinter wheel without rubbing.

Which Sprinters will the aluminum replacement fuel tank fit on?

The ACGB Replacement Fuel Tank is compatible with all 2nd generation (NCV3 2007 – 2018) & 3rd generation (VS30 2019+) Mercedes Sprinter 2500 & 3500s. This tank’s footprint starts where the factory tank is located and extends all the way thru the cavity outside of the driver side frame rail. Because of this no heaters, tanks, or batteries can be mounted on that side under the van.

Our Auxiliary Fuel Tanks are a great alternative for those looking to extend the Sprinter’s fuel range.

Does Agile make a 4×4 conversion kit for Mercedes-Benz Sprinter?

No, not at this time. Because Mercedes makes 4 wheel drive an option from the factory we felt it was best to leave the design & installation of the system to them so we could focus on improving other areas such as suspension.

Is there a manual or air locker available for the Mercedes Sprinter rear differential?

At this time there is no aftermarket locker available in the U.S for second generation (NCV3 2006-2018) Sprinters. The rear end is manufactured by Mercedes. Gear ratio is either 3.92 or 4.18 depending on spec.

    I would like electric entry steps for driver, co-driver and middle rear door for ease of entry and a additional 20 gallon tank for the new sprinter I am buying, can you assist me and accomplish this?

    • Elikem - AgileOffRoad.com 3 months ago

      Please fill out the form at the bottom of our 20-Gallon Sprinter Fuel Tank page and include any relevant details of your build. We’ll get back to you with a quote as soon as possible.

    Is there any kind of brake improvement package for the sprinter?

    • Elikem - AgileOffRoad.com 3 months ago

      We have a Sprinter Brake Upgrade Kit featuring slotted rotors, performance pads and stainless steel brake lines available in our online store. Fits 2007 – 2018 2WD & 4×4 Sprinters.

    Great FAQs, thank you! Is the 2019 year included in the largest tire size list above? Do you have recommendations on pairing the KO2s and Black Rhinos on a 2019 Sprinter 4×4? The local LS couldn’t even find the required bolt pattern. Adding this to your FAQ list would be helpful. Much appreciated!

      We install BFG K02 tires on 95% of vans we work on. We’re big fans! We also outfit plenty of Sprinters with Black Rhino wheels. Click here to see all of our Sprinter Wheel & Tire offerings.

    Can you give me an estimate on the Sprinter Brake Upgrade? I would have the work done, not do it myself. The brakes on the 2500 Sprinter a mushy, not like the brakes on a factory Mercedes car.

  5. Khai Lee 3 months ago

    Hello, do you offer a RIP kit for a 2006 2500 cargo (114wb if it matters)?

    Thanks,

    • Elikem - AgileOffRoad.com 3 months ago

      Khai, the only suspension product we offer for the 2006 Sprinter is a custom-tuned Fox 2.0 rear shock. If you have further inquiries please email us at info@agileoffroad.com.

    Are the Maximum Tire sizes listed for stock vehicles? How dose the fitting change with the 2wd NCV3 Rip Kit? (2500)
    Thanks!

    • Elikem - AgileOffRoad.com 2 months ago

      Galen the max tire size listed for 2007-2018 (NCV3) Sprinter is for both stock & lifted vans.

  7. Rick Fall 4 weeks ago

    I have a 2008 Sprinter Navion Motor home and would like to change the wimpy sounding horn.
    I do not see the location of it. Can you please send a graphic of where it is?
    And what is the best recommendation for replacement?

    • Elikem - AgileOffRoad.com 3 weeks ago

      Hello Rick. Your horn should be located somewhere underneath the front bumper cover. Although we don’t have a Horn Upgrade Kit available for your year Sprinter (due to the cooling fans in the front being in the way of our mounting bracket) you can still install the PIAA dual bass horns. You’ll just have to fabricate/get creative with a mounting location. Email us at info@agileoffroad.com for more info.

    Can you verify whether a 275/70/17 will work without tripping the 2019 MBUX cruise control system? It is our understanding you have had success running them over a number of miles. Thanks, Joe

    • Elikem - AgileOffRoad.com 1 week ago

      Joe we’ve installed 275/70-R17 on quite a few 2019 4×4 Sprinters both with and without our RIP kit. We’ve had zero trouble with the MB cruise control system. The only modification required to run tires this size is to replace the stock lower front fender with our “No-Rub” replacement fender.

    what is the largest tire that can be put on a 2019 3500 HD 4×4 170 EX sprinter with dually rears without lift or well modification?

    • Elikem - AgileOffRoad.com 1 week ago

      The largest tire we recommend on Sprinter 3500 is 235/85-R16. We recently installed a set of BFG K02s in this size on a 2020 Winnebago Boldt.

  10. Adrian Rosu 7 days ago

    What is the largest tire size with your no-rub mud guard using the oem 16″ rim, on a 2019 4×4 Sprinter Passenger Van? Also, is there an estimate for when AMP powersteps will be available for the 2019 Sprinters.

    • Elikem - AgileOffRoad.com 4 days ago

      265/75-R16 is our recommendation. However, we haven’t encountered that specific combination yet (which means you may not need the no-rub fender). We’ll certainly update you once we’ve tried it. The majority of our 2019 Sprinter customers are running 17″ wheels when upgrading tires.

      AMP Powersteps are available for 2019+ Sprinters for installation at our shop!

  11. Joe Kempe 4 days ago

    Elikem, that’s great news. Is the 75/70/17 the largest tire working with the MBUX cruise control. No rubs, fuel tank, etc in order
