I had 37'' tires on it before I swapped axles, they cleared fine but the 15'' wheels would not clear the rear calipers. The offset on these wheel put the part way back under the flares.
The bad. Its loud and fast and not the prettiest Bronco out there. It does leak oil from the valve covers needs new gaskets. Trans pan leaks a little from where they put the temp sensor . The speedo works but I don't think it is accurate . one of the rear flares is cracked . It could use some weather stripping around the doors for winter time driving.
The Good. Its loud and fast and not the prettiest Bronco out there.
