Since day one Method Race Wheels has been pushing the boundaries of product development and 2019 is no different. While our competitors continue to replicate our style and brand, no one can match out passion to build the lightest, strongest, and fastest wheels available for the dirt minded market. From Bead Grip® technology to Flow Form construction, simulated beadlocks and new finishes, Method has new styles and features your customers will be asking for.
Kicking things off in the Street Series is the 313. With Flow Form construction, the 313 is lighter than other Street Series wheels but just as strong and dependable. This cutting-edge manufacturing technique creates aluminum properties similar to forged products at a fraction of the cost. Additional wheel features include lightening pockets machined into the spokes to further enhance the weight savings. Barrel Strengthening Ribs (BSR) are found around the barrel for increased radial strength. The inner and outer bead seat of the 313 are also knurled to ensure that tire doesn’t go anywhere under extreme forces. Available in 17×8.5, the 313 is hub centric for common 5 and 6 lug applications. Finishes include Titanium and Matte Black with new Carbon Fiber snap in cap.
Next up, the new 314. This burly looking wheel was inspired by classic Dakar Rally® wheel design. The 314 features 356 aluminum construction with T6 heat treatment with added weight saving coming from pockets machined into the wheel face. The 314 is hub centric for common 5, 6 and 8 lug applications and has a load rating up to 3640 lbs. Finishes include the new Gloss Titanium and classic Matte Black.
The last addition to the Street Series for 2019 is the new 315. A street legal version of the soon to be released Method 103 Beadlock race wheel, the 315 is constructed of 356 aluminum with T6 heat treatment. The lip has weight saving pockets machined into it and includes replaceable stainless steel MRW Street Loc bolts. A new finish for Method on the 315 is Gloss Gold with Black lip. Other finishes include Machined with clear coat and Matte Black. The 315 is available in 16” and 17” with hub centric fitments for common 5, 6 and 8 lug applications. A one-piece screw on cap is included.
The second installment in the Trail Series is the all-new 702. Like all wheels in the Trail Series lineup, the 702 features our patented Bead Grip® technology. Strategically placed grooves on the inner and outer bead seat along with a more aggressive safety hump contribute to more secure tire bead retention when running lower air pressures. The 702 is constructed of 356 aluminum with T6 heat treatment and takes a reinforced inner lip design directly from our race wheels. Offered in 17×8.5, the 702 is hub centric for common 5 and 6 lug applications. Finishes include classic Method Bronze and Matte Black.
