I feel like the non SQ base tires/wheels are almost meant to be take offs. The tires from Big Bend & Black Diamond 32's will fit on the base.
Tires on 17" rim
Big Bend: H 32.06" x W 10.04"
Black Dia: H 31.61" x W 10.43
The million dollar question is will 285 70 r17 fit? base 3.73 gearing is...
Nobody knows the answer yet. There appears to be a ton of room but until someone tires it...
I think 285s would look good lower trim levels. The tire might be too wide without a lift. Also, might be too much tire for 3.73 gearing.
I was thinking about maybe even trying 275 70 r17. The...
You have a lot of great points. My comments below are regarding a 4 door.
I have really been struggling with tire size on this vehicle. Especially, because we have to commit to a trim level with so many unknowns. Also, not even seeing the Bronco in person.
I think SQ looks good and well...
I did not want to be the first person to say it... I had the same thought.
However, it is not a fair comparison because it is a rubicon. It is like when there was a jeep sport parked next to a Sasquatch.
I really am not liking the 265 70 tires.
I have very similar builds but also a 2.7 mid BB as well.
I am struggling with two issues, with option 1 - non SQ 2.3 4 door Base:
-the 3.73 gearing. Will this limit my tire size above 32". I would like an option to add 285 70r17 (~33's). If immediately replacing wheels and tires, I would...
I feel the same way. The 4 door just doesn't look right to me without SQ. I said it in another thread but it is like the designers build the body for 35's.
I do think 285's will look better but who know what it takes to fit. Also, I have a hard time purchasing a higher trim just to...
Thanks for the pic. I am surprised how much smaller the bronco looks maybe it is the angle.
This concept vehicle needs SQ lift. It looks undrivable. A speed bump would rip fenders off. Surprised Ford shows it this way.
I wonder what the non SQ Bronco would look like in this pic.
