Upon the introduction of the Ford Bronco almost two years ago, Ford Authority put together a comprehensive guide to all the unique tire and wheel options available for the rugged pony. Now that some new models have been released to bolster the off-road SUV’s lineup, we decided to make a new guide to provide the most accurate list of Bronco tire and wheel options for the 2023 model year, broken out by trim level and package.
|Trim||Tire Size||Tire Make & Model||Wheel Type||Tire Diameter (inches)||Wheel Size (inches)|
|Base||255/70||Bridgestone Dueler H/T||Steel||30||16|
|Big Bend||255/75||Bridgestone Dueler A/T RH-S||Aluminum||32||17|
|Outer Banks||255/70||Bridgestone Dueler A/T RH-S||Aluminum||32||18|
|Black Diamond||265/70||General Grabber A/T||Steel||32||17|
|Badlands||285/70||BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 & Goodyear Territory||Aluminum||33||17|
|First Edition||315/70||Goodyear Territory||Aluminum||35||17|
|Heritage Limited35-Edition||315/70||Goodyear Territory||Aluminum||35||17|
|Sasquatch Package||315/70||Goodyear Territory||Aluminum||35||17|
|Bronco Raptor||315/80||BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2||Alloy||37||17|
Every Ford Bronco variant rolls right off the assembly line with a set of rugged tires ready for any off-road adventure. Even the Bronco Base is outfitted with 30-inch Bridgestone Dueler H/T tires wrapped around 16-inch Bright Polished Silver painted steel wheels, although those are all-season tires, so their ability to go seriously off-road may be limited. The Big Bend and Outer Banks trims are each outfitted with 32-inch Bridgestone Dueler A/T RH-S tires, with the former rolling on 17-inch Carbonized Gray painted aluminum wheels and the latter on 17-inch Black High-Gloss painted aluminum wheels.
Meanwhile, Black Diamond gets 17-inch Black Gloss painted steel wheels as standard, with optional 17-inch Black High Gloss painted aluminum wheels. Outer Banks models get 18-inch Bright Machined Black High Gloss painted aluminum wheels as standard, and 17-inch Machined Carbonized Gray painted aluminum wheels are standard on Badlands. Optional 17-inch Black High Gloss painted aluminum wheels with Carbonized Gray beauty rings are optional on this trim. Additionally, the Bronco Heritage Limited Edition gets 17-inch Unique White wheels as standard wrapped in 35-inch Goodyear Territory tires. Included in the Sasquatch Package, these wheels are late availability.
However, the Ford Bronco Raptor sports the meanest set of tires and wheels on the list: beefy 37-inch BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires on 17-inch High Gloss painted alloy wheels. The Bronco Raptor also has 17-inch Dark Carbonized Gray alloy painted, beadlock-capable forged wheels.
There are also plenty of wheel options available from Ford directly, such as beadlock wheel kits, a set of 17-inch wheels for Badlands, along with a functional beadlock kit. That enables Bronco owners to purchase wheels they might not have received on their models should they desire a spare set or simply want to upgrade.
