Last November, Ford Authority exclusively reported The Blue Oval would offer select Method Wheels in its Ford Performance catalog. At some point, it was expected that the sporty aftermarket wheel options would eventually be offered on the Ford F-150. These wheels made their Ford Performance endorsed debut on a 2021 F-150 at SEMA 2021, which was wearing a set of 18-inch Method Wheels. Now, we spied a 2022 Ford F-150 sporting a new set of Methods undergoing testing on public roads.
It’s likely that this pickup is being used to validate the wheels themselves, ensuring that they are up to Ford’s standards before The Blue Oval officially includes them in its catalog. The wheels in question are Method’s 301 Standard Wheels, which feature a 10-spoke design with a Method logo debossed on the center cap. These wheels offer customizable lip bolts available in several different colors, along with flush center cap options. The wheels have a 2,100 to 3,600-pound load rating, more than enough to carry the 2022 Ford F-150 Tremor.
These particular wheels are tagged with part number MR30157012506N, and are available in any size from 15 inches to 20 inches for five-, six- and eight-lug configurations. They can be ordered in the matte black finish seen on this particular F-150, or with a bright machined finish, though it’s currently not clear if the latter will be offered in the Ford Performance catalog. The wheels are listed on Method’s website for a $906 starting price, and it’s not yet clear if Ford will offer them for the same price as the manufacturer.
Customers interested in adding custom wheels to their 2022 Ford F-150 can also opt for the stock Ford F-150 Tremor wheels, which are available as a standalone option in the Ford Performance catalog for $1,350. Additionally, Ford may also offer wheels with a bronze finish in the future as the color gains popularity among aftermarket buyers.
