OEM wheels

I'm thinking about running the stock steel wheels on my 74. I can't find them at any salvage yards in the Memphis area. I found a few on ebay. Shipping is ridiculous. Any suggestions? I never would have thought a plain Jane steel wheel would be hard to find. Will there be any issues with my 31x10.5-15 tires?

I think an original equipment wheel will be too narrow for your tires. You can probably find something that looks close to stock but is available in the correct width.
Maybe Summit racing, or someplace else that sells a lot of wheel styles.

There are several folks running 31x10.50x15 BFG KM2s on stock wheels. I went with the same set up and I think it looks great.

I have a 2.5" suspension lift on my 74`Bronco with stock wheel under the uncut fenders. So you are saying I can use the 31x10.50x15 BFG tires without them rubbing my back fenders ? Thanks

I also have a 2.5 SL but my bronco is not finished. A fellow member (Mustangs2) has a blue bronco that was the inspiration for my setup (along with being my screen saver on my work computer). I believe he has not had any issue with rubbing...maybe he will chime in.

Hi, I've had the original 15 x 5.5 rims, and many tire guys say they are too narrow for the 31 x 10.5 tires.
I've never had any issues in 30 years.
Also they never rubbed the uncut quarters with a 2 1/2" lift ( now 3 1/2").
Good luck
