Hi, I might buy a stock 1992 bronco from someone, but I have a few questions:

If the stock wheel size is 235/75-15, I want to change it to 265/75-15. But, will I have to recalibrate the speedometer if I change to that tire size? If I don't recalibrate it, will it put more miles or less miles on the odometer than what I actually drive?

If the Bronco has an internal mount spare tire, and I change the tires to 265/75-15, will the new tire size fit in the internal holder? Assume this car is in stock condition, with a stock internal rim & 235/75-15 tire.

The stock rims are kinda ugly. Do you guys recommend any better ones that are the same size as the base model rim? I like the ones with the circular holes.

Is there a order guide available which lists options for 1992 broncos? Like what options are available for each trim (like Custom, XL, XLT, ...)

Was it possible to order a 1992 Bronco Custom with Leather Seats?

As for the spare tire they take a measuring tape and measure them. I don't think the bigger tire will make much of a difference on the miles. It will be off by just a few miles an hour but not enough to matter unless your really concerned with the miles on your rig.

I went to 31/10.50/15 from the stock 235 and mine is off 6%. So at 50 I am really doing 53, etc. When I check my mpg I add 6% to the trip meter for an accurate number. This tire is only 30mm wider, 75% of that is what, about 25mm total taller height, meaning a ride height change of around 12mm? Very little difference.
What you will probably find is that the speedo will read close to spot on because from the factory they are required to be spot on or read slightly high.

Go to one of the tire sites, like Tirerack.com and you can test fit stuff and look at wheels.

How did I figure this out? I drove the interstate about 100 miles and continually compared my trip meter distance with the mile markers. Consistent.

yo dude,
As 94_XLT & rpeters advised




for 92 Options, look for Ford Dealer Brochures for sale on AMAZON or e bay; such as http://www.ebay.ca/itm/1992-FORD-BRONCO-BROCHURE-SALES-CATALOG-CUSTOM-XLT-XLT-NITE-EDDIE-BAUER/311264029217?_trksid=p2047675.c100011.m1850&_trkparms=aid=222007&algo=SIC.MBE&ao=1&asc=20140620075055&meid=6d706a80b8514d0fb38aa42a58274a88&pid=100011&rk=1&rkt=10&sd=131086097192

Most 92-96 Bronco brochures are at least 9 pages; if you decide to buy, ask if it is complete or missing cebter fold-out page(s) or back cover...etc.
