Man i cant believe its been almost 2 years. Thanks to most of you on here you steered me in the 17” direction and also towards the M/T Classic III’s. Love the wheels, fairly easy to maintain, classic look but the 17x9” wheels help modernize it a bit. Originally with the new wheels i put 285/70R17 nitto ridge grapplers on them and loved the look. After about 2 years the tires seemed too skinny for my liking. I missed the width of my 305/60R18’s before i switched to 285’s on 17’s. Bad thing is the tires only have about 10k miles on them and still have plenty of tread. I may have them sold to a buddy or i can sell them no prob on facebook. Luckily i work at a tire shop so i am fortunate enough to get tires at a little over cost. So i bit the bullet and ordered a set of five 33x12.50R17 nitto ridge grapplers. Got em mounted a few days ago and im so much happier with the stance now, now it looks like a bronco! Best part is the 33x12.50’s are the same od as the 285/70R17’s so no need to recalibrate the psom

Hi! I love the Bronco and it looks great with the new shoes, How much lift do you have on your truck?

Hey fordbronco1995 -
I like the looks of the wider tires on the lower stance! I don't care much for lifting - have trouble getting in and out of the truck.
Yours looks great!
