Great job to you all. What size tires did you put on your Fifteen52's? And, if you don't mind me asking, what did it cost to paint the top? My wheels/tires will be installed in 3 weeks on my 2023 OB..

You can go with either the 16" or 17" 1552 wheels. Which ones you choose I would say would be based on two factors: how large a tire you want, and how much sidewall you want. For example, you could do 265/70/16, 265/75/16, 275/70/16, 285/75/16, or a range of sizes in 17 as well. Outer Banks has a 32" tire, so 265/75/16 would be about 1/2" smaller diameter, 285/75/16 would be about 3/4" taller. The 17" wheel would give you options with less sidewall for the same diameter tire if that's your preference. For reference, Black Diamond has 265/70/17 standard and Badlands has 285/70/17 standard.

I chose a smaller tire with the 1552 wheels for mine mainly to get something that was fairly inexpensive yet still good overall. The Wrangler Workhorse AT tires have a 3-peak rating for good snow performance. I put the stock wheels and KO2s on for off-roading. It mainly just depends on what your goals are.

I bought the 17" Fifteen52's. Initially I was going to put 285/70/17's on those wheels. But, after reviewing tire sizes, 255/75/17 will maintain the exact overall size of the stock 255/70/18's that are on the OB. 285's will give me too much poke on the 0 offset Analog HD's.

Woah! While your Retro is indeed impressive, I love that red '78! It even has the diamond plate running boards that my parent's old Bronco had when I was a kid!

That is an awesome old Bronco!!
