Aftermarket Sprinter Alloy Wheels

I'm about 7 months away from ordering my 2015 Sprinter ..and I've got so many questions that I'll
probably be asking here and maybe other forums as well. First off, MBZ wants $785 for the Alloy wheels.
I'm thinking of just getting the van with the standard steel wheels and looking for alloy wheels on my own. Has anyone gone through this already? If so, where did you find the wheels, and did you save any money?

I'm assuming you mean $785 each? Ouch!

Check our Euorcampers- they have some Warrior alloy wheels at about $100/per. Interestingly, my local Discount Tire could get me the same wheels for a few $$ less, and no shipping costs. I opted ot go for some used/takeoff steel wheels for my winter tires.

I like the look of the Warrior wheels. I'll keep them in mind. After seeing all the available options, the cost of pre-ordering a van can be overwhelming. I may have to put the fancy wheels on hold.
Black steel wheels will do for now.

I also like the look of the Warrior wheels. It definitely helps the look of the van, but does not break the bank, compared to other wheels which can cost order of magnitudes more. Something else to file under what to get for a build when I finally get this started.

When I ordered my new van last Spring (2014 passenger 2500 w/ 4-cyl), I agreed to the $785 for a set of five MB alloy wheels with tire pressure sensors and tires factory mounted/balanced. Yes, my spare wheel is also an alloy This equates to $157 per wheel.

I keep going back and forth between black steel wheels and the alum wheels. Does anyone know if the Premium Appearance Pkg includes all five wheels in alum....or is the spare steel? ...and is black alum available?
