At Owl, if they are not happy with the performance of something, they build it ourselves. With the new Owl Talon Wheel, they wanted to create something that raised the performance of the Sprinter wheel beyond what is available today. For the major wheel manufacturers, the Sprinter market is an afterthought. That means they don't make wheels specifically designed for a Sprinter, they re-machine wheel blanks from a different vehicle and make them "fit" the sprinter. This means the wheel typically isn't optimized for the proper load capacity or offset.

TALON SPRINTER WHEEL FEATURES
Load Capacity- With the massive weight of modern Sprinter builds Owl felt it was time to build a wheel that was both lightweight but also drastically increased the load-carrying capacity of the wheel. In basic terms, they wanted something stronger that could take the abuse of a 10,000 lbs van pounding the dirt off-road and on.
Here are some specs:
Owl Talon - 4200 lbs (Talon wheel weight 32 lbs)
BR Barstow - 2700 lbs (Wheel weight 32 lbs)
BR Arsenal - 2600 lbs (Wheel weight 32 lbs)
Method 701 - 3600 lbs (Wheel weight 28 lbs)
Offset- The offset of a wheel in basic terms is how much it sticks out the side of the van. All Sprinter wheels are a positive offset and the lower the number the farther the wheel will stick out the side of the van. By having a wheel with a lower offset you widen the track of your van. This means you also lower the centre of gravity. This is a massive advantage when off-roading in a tall vehicle like a Sprinter Van.
Sprinter Wheel Offsets:
Owl Talon - 30mm
BR Barstow - 38mm
BR Arsenal - 38mm
Method 701 - 50mm
Fits Sprinter 2500 (2007-present) including Revel, Storyteller, Tranquility, Cahaba
Colours: Satin Black, Graphite Grey, Bronze (Wheel centre cap is all BLACK)
Bolt Pattern: 6x130mm
Lug Bolt Seat Style: Cone
Lightweight rugged aluminum
Bead Retention Ring
Highest Load rating in the industry: 4200 lbs per wheel
Dual valve stem system (Apex Valve sold separately)
Larger tire sizes may require a mondo kit or some trimming for clearance
Dual Valve Stem System- Owl knows how critical lowering air pressure is for traction off-road. They also how what a pain and how time-consuming lowering tire pressure can be. That's why they decided to innovate on the Owl Talon and include a second valve stem location. This second valve stem allows you to run the factory TPMS (tire pressure monitors) as well as run an Apex quick air dump system. This dual valve stem system allows for the best of both worlds.
*Apex valves are not required. If you don't order the Apex valves with the wheels you can simply install a second standard valve stem.
