It’s hard to not love the sleek, modern styling of the 2019+ Mercedes Sprinter VS30 vans. The only complaint we at Van Compass have about them is the tiny wheel openings Mercedes designed into them. Unfortunately, fitment of anything bigger than a 245/70/17 tire will rub the inner fender liners or pinch seam on the van. Even with our 2” Striker lift kits, the ability to run a larger tire is hindered without addressing the small wheel openings.
We at Van Compass developed a cost effective, simple solution to solve this problem. The Big Tire Mudflap Bracket Kit allows fitment of up to a 35 x 12.5 x 17” tire on a 4x4 van equipped with our 2” Striker Lift Kit. 2wd vans can easily clear up to a 285/70/17 tire when paired with our 2” Striker lift system as well.
This bracket kit addresses not only the small front wheel openings, but it also provides a solution in the rear of the van to get some proper tires on your VS30 Sprinter van. The Big Tire Mudflap Brackets are made from laser cut & CNC formed steel plate that has been powder coated for a durable, long lasting finish. Installation is simple and just requires cutting and trimming of the lower portions of the rear of the fender arches for a clean installation all while retaining the stock mudflaps for a near factory finished look.
As with all Van Compass products, all hardware to install the brackets is included as are detailed instructions to walk you through the install. Take a look at the instructions below for more detail on how this kit works and get big tires under your VS30 Sprinter.
NOTE: Vehicles equipped with Distronic / Brake Assist (AKA; Adaptive Cruise Control) can run a maximum tire size of 275/75/16 or 275/70/17. Fitment of a larger tire than that will cause the Distronic system to not function.
