There is a plating company in Seattle that will re-plate or paint rims with any color or material you can afford. In the 80' & 90" i had 3 sets all factory Bronco rims chrome plated.

They look good but I would like to see a manufacturer go very retro with something like this for the 6G. Obviously, it would need to be six lug and probably a six spoke design.
Beautiful! These remind me of the Konig Rewinds I had on a Mini Cooper years ago. I loved those wheels.

Add this to the list of another really great looking wheel that many of us won't buy because we don't want our tires sticking out even more than they already do. 🤷‍♂️

you would think something "designed for the ford bronco" would have at least some positive offset
My thoughts exactly. 0 offset pokes even with SAS fender flares. It was a challenge to find a wheel that I liked in a positive offset. 90% of the off-road wheels I even considered were 0 offset. KMC was the best option for me even at +18. I wanted the RTR Tech 6’s in +30 but they were sold out for the longest time. Went with KMC Roswell’s and I’m very happy with them.

Disappointing seeing these as zero offset, seems kinda crapy advertising them as "for the Bronco" as such. Been on the perpetual lookout for a conservative, no-fake-beadlock-ring wheel in a reasonably positive (say 20+) offset, got all excited seeing the picture for these, but certainly won't get them as currently spec'ed.

Having never owned a "real" 4x4 and knowing nothing about offset, what offset am I looking for to replace the stock Black Diamond wheels without adding tire poke?

+35 should be safe with 285 or narrower tires. You might have a little sidewall past the flare but the tread should be about flush.

They look like the wheels on my wagon as a kid. The style looked good then and still looks good today but you lost me at Taiwan but I guess that’s better than China! Boxed in to some degree.

Taiwan is the best at making a lot of things. In this case, super happy to hear that it's made there instead of China

Agreed Taiwan is very on point on what they produce. I'll buy from any other foreign country but China, this has been a standing rule in our household for 20 plus years.
This said, and to my original comment, It would be nice to find an Iconic Amerian made wheel that looks the part to go onto an Iconic American vehicle, even though knowing the rig is made up of many foreign parts and components. just my opinion though.

yes sir, I do like those. need a finish that is silver, titanium, etc. Something along those lines
If you find a wheel that you love and they don't offer your color/finish, consider powder coating. It is essentially the same process that you get with a "factory" finish.

You have to do some digging to find your local shops, but they are out there. I paid $65/wheel and I couldn't be happier with the results.
