I can't find a good discussion of wheel specs yet-For each wheel size:

Backspacing?
Bore?
Bolt Pattern/measurements?

I think we have heard 17x8.5", 6x139.5mm on the Sasquatch wheels. Is that accurate?

4.25" backspacing would imply zero offset? Positive offset would indicate tucked in more? Negative would push them out?

I am interested in this too. I was thinking about ordering the rims I want now but would hate to order the wrong ones.

Correct! A more positive offset would tuck the wheels into the fenders and a more negative offset would push the wheels away from the fenders.

The slope of the fender flares concern me a bit with a negative offset. May also have to do some cutting on the body too as the tires will turn starting from the outside vs inside the well. Not a big deal as many times you have to cut the Jeep, but both are structured a bit different and have to see what the Bronco entails.

You can't order wheels for the broncos yet as no one is making them for the bronco yet. Wheel manufacturers need to know the specs also before deciding on offset/backspacing etc.

Yes you can- fifteen52 and Method already know the wheel specs. The bolt pattern and size is already known. Hub bore is a slight guess at this point, but the wheel manufacturers above know for sure.

I will.. Once order is placed and we finalize color choice. Ordering wheels week of December 7th...
Ford didn't go crazy and reinvent the wheel...

Sometimes I crack myself up. seriously though- it should not be an issue with stock size tires (my plan)

I am waiting as there are many manufacturers waiting on specs. I run Titan7s (Forged and about 10 pounds lighter when compared to OEM wheel) on my Raptor and will most likely run the same on the bronco:

A new version is coming. The version I am running on my 2019 Raptor (the one below) was never designed with a center cap. The new version will have a center cap and it will most likely have a Bronco application.


These absolutely look great

I emailed fifteen52 and they responded.

My Q to them was:
“I have a reservation for a Bronco Badlands. I would like to get the Traverse wheels that are featured on the Badlands Overland concept vehicle. Can you tell me the size, bolt pattern and offset of those wheels.”

they said:
“You’ll want to run the 17x8.5 6x139.7 ET0 option 😊

I want (need) to find out the backspace on the Badlands optional wheel and on the squatch wheel. Hope we can get this before we have to order.

Nothing. Come On Bronco!!

Same. If I can get away with the optional "beadlock capable" wheel on 35s, that's what I'll be doing.
