After some delays, the 2021 Ford Bronco is only months away from reaching dealerships nationwide. While we wait for it to launch, we’ve learned a lot about the upcoming off-road SUV, including its diverse array of wheel options. In a similar manner to how Ford Authority showed you the wheels on the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport, we’re now going to go through all of the standard and available wheels on the 2021 Bronco, broken out by trim level.
Our first trio of wheels covers the first three 2021 Ford Bronco trim levels: Base, Big Bend, and Black Diamond trim levels. The Base comes standard with a set of 16-inch bright polished Silver-painted steel wheels, while the Big Bend nets shoppers a set of 17-inch Carbonized Gray-painted aluminum wheels. The Black Diamond trim features a set of standard 17-inch Black Gloss-painted aluminum steel wheels.
This second round of 2021 Ford Bronco wheels features the first optional wheels, in the form of the 17-inch Black High Gloss-painted aluminum wheels, which are optional on Black Diamond. After that are the only 18-inch wheels in the entire Bronco lineup: the bright machined Black High Gloss-painted aluminum wheels that are standard on every Outer Banks model. The third set comes standard on Badlands, and they’re 17-inch machined Carbonized Gray-painted aluminum wheels.
The last sets of wheels are all beadlock capable and are featured on the most capable models in the 2021 Ford Bronco lineup. First, there’s the optional 17-inch wheels for Badlands models. These are black with a Carbonized Gray beauty ring. A similar looking set (yet with a different spoke pattern) are 17-inch Black High Gloss-painted aluminum with Warm Alloy beauty ring. These are standard wheels for nearly all models equipped with the Sasquatch Package.
Finally, the 17-inch Black High Gloss-painted aluminum wheels with a Black beauty ring are exclusive to the Wildtrak and First Edition models.

The 2021 Ford Bronco wheel lineup is dominated by 17-inch aluminum alloys. From our table, it’s clear that Ford has a fairly rational wheel strategy for every Bronco model driven by function, though also with an attractive form. We can’t wait to see them in action when the Bronco launches later this year.
