Over on the Raptor site we compiled a list of lightweight wheel options. Granted, this list is for the Raptor lug pattern but I am betting they also have options for the Bronco.

I have the Truck Stars on my Raptor. LOL. I wanted light and easy to clean. They excel in those areas. Cosmetics, not so much.I'm all for adding lightness (Colin Chapman) but man those truck stars are ugly as sin!
The RRW wheels are more my style - wish they had weights listed on their site though. The ranger selections look pretty good.
Typically smaller diameter rims and tires end up being lighter than 20" options. The best performing Bronco for daily driving and fuel economy is the base model with the 30" tires and 16" wheels, but that isn't the aesthetic we all want.Is it silly for me to consider larger diameter wheels and less tire wall to reduce the rolling weight of the bronco? Like maintaining overall diameter but increasing the wheel size to say 20" to drop weight for my day to day driving.
I've said it before, but any real offroading I'll be doing will be a planned trip as I have to travel, so I could see myself getting a second set of wheels+tires in a few years, and keeping the original to switch on for those trips. Plenty young enough to swap the wheels+tires for those times.
