As Ford Authority reported earlier this week, the Ford Performance catalog will soon contain a pair of Method Wheels – the 301 and 703 – which will mark the very first time aftermarket wheels will be offered via the catalog. While it’s currently unclear when these wheels might launch or how much they cost, sources tell Ford Authority that the 301 series wheel will only be offered in matte black for now. Thanks to this 2021 Ford F-150 that was at SEMA in the Ford Out Front display, we know exactly what those wheels – in this case measuring 18 inches in diameter – will look like on the 14th gen pickup.
Method’s 301 wheel is currently available in either Matte Black or Machined Clear Coat finishes in a wide variety of sizes and backspacing to fit a number of different applications. It features a 10-spoke design with an embossed Method logo and is constructed from solid A356 aluminum with T6 heat treatment.
Method’s 301 wheels are available with a number of other customization options as well, including replaceable lip bolts with different optional color choices, flush cap appearance options, center caps with various design options, and lip bolt kits in various colors.
In addition to the Method wheels on this 2021 Ford F-150, the pickup is also equipped with the Bilstein off-road suspension leveling kit from Ford Performance, which Ford Authority exclusively reported on earlier this week. The plug-and-play kit raises the front end of the F-150 by two inches, eliminating the factory rake and giving it a level stance. However, instead of adding spacers to the front coilovers, this kit contains replacement coilovers for all four corners, including Bilstein’s 5160 rear dampers that come equipped with remote reservoirs.
This new Bilstein off-road suspension leveling kit will carry the part number M-18000-F15B in Ford Performance’s catalog and is compatible with all four-wheel-drive 2021 F-150 models save for the Raptor and Tremor, and has no negative impact on the truck’s hauling or towing capabilities.
