Wheel width. The standard wheel that comes with the Sprinter is 6.5” wide.
The Method standard wheel is 7.5” wide.
A 265/70/17 tire is specified to be mounted on a rim width of 7” to 8.5”.
Don’t quote me on this (I am not in a place where I can easily look it up), but I recall that you can fit up to a 285 on a 7.5” wide wheel. Beyond that a wider wheel is called for.
Many put wider-than-rated tires on existing wheels to good effect. That’s a personal decision we all get to make.
