The Method 701 Bead Grip Wheels for Ford Transit Vans are the perfect wheels for the enthusiasts who crave adventure and performance. Method Bead Grip® technology will allow deflation of tires down to pressures that previously would have required beadlock wheels to ensure tires didn’t debead on the trail. Lower pressures also increases a tire’s contact surface area giving you better traction and improved ride comfort by effectively reducing the spring rate of all four tires.

Our Method 701 Bead Grip Wheels for Ford Transit AWD Vans are the perfect wheels for the enthusiasts who crave adventure and performance. Method Bead Grip® technology will allow deflation of tires down to pressures that previously would have required beadlock wheels to ensure tires didn’t debead on the trail. Lower pressures also increases a tire’s contact surface area giving you better traction and improved ride comfort by effectively reducing the spring rate of all four tires. Additionally, a reinforced inner lip taken from MRW Race wheel technology was integrated into the wheel to increase strength. The wheels itself is made from solid A356 aluminum and constructed by using a T6 heat treatment construction. The engineers of the wheels even considered protecting the valve stems and placed it in a location to make sure it isn’t damaged on the trails.

Our unique Bahia Blue color, inspired by the coastline of the Baja peninsula, is sure to transform your Transit camper van into a show stopper.

The Method 701 Trail Series Wheel for Ford Transit AWD Vans was designed to be the perfect wheel for overland enthusiasts. The Bead Grip technology allows deflation of tires down to pressures that previously would have required beadlock wheels to make sure tires didn’t debead. It’s advantageous to reduce tire inflation pressure while off-roading to increase a tire’s contact patch surface area for better traction on loose surfaces as well as improve ride comfort by effectively reducing the spring rate of the tire. The valve was strategically placed for extra protection in harsh riding environments.

The Method 701 Bead Grip Wheels for Ford Transit AWD Vans is constructed with one-piece cast 356 aluminum construction with T6 heat treatment. This wheel includes Method’s patent pending ‘Bead Grip’ technology, which engages with tire bead seat for increased grip while running lower air pressures, as well as a reinforced inner lip taken from race wheel design. The aggressive safety hump on the inner and outer bead seat further stabilizes tire and prevents de-beading. Method Race Wheels was created to give to the off road racing community a wheel company that makes wheels specifically for their sport. Every wheel is engineered and designed for its intended use, having been through numerous Finite Element Analysis and field tests. Method Race Wheels have been developed to minimize weight and increase strength. The result is a wheel that is Lighter. Stronger. Faster.

BEAD GRIP: HIGHER GRIP AT LOWER PRESSURE. ONLY FROM METHOD.

WHAT IT IS:

Patented Bead Grip technology aims to be the bridge between a conventional street wheel and a beadlock, which is often not legal for highway use. Reducing air pressure in the tire increases traction and ride quality while on the trail. The ability to safely run lower pressures without having to worry about the tire de-beading along with DOT approval will undoubtedly be a bonus to off-road enthusiasts.

WHY IT’S OFF-ROAD PROVEN:

The integrated Bead Grip grooves, found on both the inner and outer bead seat, engage the tire bead for a stronger hold under extreme side load and lower air pressures. The wheel’s ‘safety hump’ also gets a more aggressive profile which further stabilizes the tire bead in the seat.

Nomadic Supply Company Freight Versus the Big Box Stores

Nomadic Supply Company wants you to receive your valuable products in absolutely pristine condition so we ship our large refrigerators via truck freight, and we handle and package them in a way that no other retailer does.

When we prepare refrigerators for shipment we spend a full hour to inspect, re-pack, prepare, and schedule your truck freight shipment for the following day. This process ensures that your order arrives to you completely undamaged and in brand new condition. Our competitors do not do any of this for you, and they are are infamous for having their refrigerator shipments arrive damaged.

Our detailed inspection and repacking process will cause a minor delay in shipping your order to you, but unlike all of the other online stores, our shipments actually arrive to you in one piece, without damage, every single time.

  • → We inspect, repack, & double or triple box refrigerators in our custom made, dual wall, fully overlapped, 450lb. test-rated boxes.
  • → Nomadic Supply Company adds 2” Styrofoam and reinforcements to the packaging and all of the large refrigerators are fully palletized.
  • → We take photos of your shipment before, during and after your order is completed. Our customers LOVE this!

We do not recommend residential deliveries via truck freight:

Residential deliveries are always more expensive than shipping to the closest freight terminal. Shipping to the closest truck freight terminal in your area has numerous advantages over shipping to your residence:

  • → It saves you a ton of money in truck freight fees, usually around 50%.
  • → You can schedule to pick the shipment up at your convenience rather than spending a full day at home waiting for it.
  • → You can thoroughly inspect your shipment for potential damage caused by the freight carrier before accepting & signing for it.

You must read and understand the entire LTL Freight process if you want to order a refrigerator from Nomadic Supply Company.
