What is the MR701?



Method Race Wheels is proud to announce the release of their all-new Trail Series MR701 wheel, set to hit the market late summer 2018. The 701's no-nonsense eight spoke design is the perfect option for those looking to get away from the popular simulated beadlock styling. With one-piece 356 aluminum construction and T6 heat treatment, the 701 is exactly what you've been looking for to hit the trails

Among many features, the all new patent-pending Bead Grip ® Technology is the most exciting. Found on both the inner and outer bead seat, strategically placed grooves are designed to engage with the tire bead for increased grip while running lower tire pressures. In addition to the grooves, the 'safety hump' has a more aggressive profile which further stabilizes the tire bead in the seat.



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.

Below is a cutaway of a tire bead on the 701 where there is clear engagement with the bead seat and the Bead Grip grooves. To the left the aggressive 'safety hump' is further preventing the tire from de-beading and instantly going flat.



A high number of wheel failures revolve around the inner lip due to its distance from the mounting pad and spokes making it responsible for sustaining heavy loads without much support. To combat this, we've taken the reinforced inner lip design from our race wheels and applied it to the 701. Load ratings are 2650 lbs for 5 & 6 lug applications and 3640 lbs for 8 lug.



The 701 will include a newly designed snap-in center cap for 5 & 6 lug applications and a push-through option for 8 lug with the same texture.



Sizes offered include 15x7, 16x8, 17x7.5 and 17x8.5 with applications for Subarus and Sprinter vans as well as most trucks, Jeeps & SUVs. Finishes include Method Bronze and Matte Black.
