T350 aftermarket wheel options?

I just took delivery of my T350. Loving it so far. Looking for some wheel upgrade options, and not finding much of anything, including the dealer. Anyone come across anything in the States yet? I'd love to increase the rim diameter, but looks like it might be tough to do with the dually wheel set up(?). Thanks for any/all input.

I don't blame you one bit.

the Transit is great looking except when it comes to wheel choices.

On the 150 we ordered, it comes with some cheap looking dollar store looking hubcaps, upgraded them to the factory alloys...

Congrats & welcome. The Transit is so new that it probably won't have much aftermarket wheel choices for awhile, especially for the DRW's. My guess is it will be another 6 months or so before you see much of anything.

Red through our threads and keep us informed of your fuel mileage and ownership impressions if you would.
You might also go to your profile and fill in a signature with your basic options and engine choice so we know what you're driving.....

You could get the stock steel wheels chromed, or powder coated in a single stage reflective chrome. It gives more of a polished aluminum look than actual chrome plating. Like a big rig dually. I was considering powder coating mine with a dark bronze metallic color to set off the Green Gem Metallic.

I like re-defining the original wheels, elegant.

I did install an aftermarket product on my van to avoid an unsightly problem with factory hubcaps, see attached.

Check out Pacific Duallies. He makes a great product. I have them on my rv and they hold up great. 3 years through Michigan winters and not a spec of rust. Don't know if he has transit specific but I'm sure he will. Great guy to deal with.

Thanks for the posts. Still nothing nearly 6 months later. Local inquiries to custom wheel manufacturers have went unanswered. Sad when you have money to throw at someone.

that should at the very least get them to start taking action unless they don't just yet see potential for it, that it might be viable enough for them.

Google 'Ford Transits at 2014 SEMA Show' and there are a few listed vendors who have wheels and other aftermarket items for the Transit. I know they have at least 3 different aftermarket wheels and Explorer Vans is using them on their custom built Transits.
