Its worth noting that Sprinters in Europe come typically with 15 inch wheels - so that isn't probably a good option in Europe then.

The brochures I could download on both the Swiss and Austrian MB website seem to mention 16-inch wheels, with 235 65-16 being the typical tire size.

I should have said that better - the European sprinter's with 5 lug rims (up to 2006?) came with 15 inch rims. I think they the switched to 16 inch rims with the 6 lug wheels in 2007. Not completely sure...

Correct, 6 lugs on the recent Sprinters... sorry I should have checked before posting.

Was able to do a test fitting of a Euro-type Transit 16 inch wheel on the disc brakes - it looks like they will require the same thickness of spacer as the Sprinter wheel and so will require an "adapter" type spacer (i.e. one which uses the stock lug bolt to attach the adapter and then has five additional lug bolts for the wheel to attach.

The outer edge of the Transit wheel appeared to be at the same position as the outer edge of the Sprinter wheel - so a very reasonable amount of offset in my opinion.
