  • 1992-1996 OBS Bronco Tire Size Guide
When it comes to selecting the best tire size for a 1992-1996 Bronco, there are several factors to consider. These include the type of driving you'll be doing, your budget, and your personal preferences. In this article, we'll explore the various tire sizes that are suitable for the Bronco and help you make an informed decision.
The 1992-1996 Bronco was manufactured with a few different tire sizes, including 215/75/15, 235/75R15, and 265/75/15 depending on the model of Bronco that you purchased. This will make the stock tire diameter vary from 27.7” to 30.6”. These sizes are good for stock suspension but can leave a little to be desired if you lift the truck or just want a meatier tire on your rig. 
If you are looking to run a taller and wider wheel and tire on your Bronco, you will need to know going up in size sometimes requires modifications and clearance of fender liners, bumpers, and other parts on your Bronco. Use the information below to help you choose your suspension and tire that will work with your modifications.

Stock Tire Heights:

The 215/75/15, 235/75/15, and 265/75/15 are the stock size for the 1992-1996 Bronco. This size is a good option if you're looking for an affordable tire that provides good fuel economy. Additionally, these tires have a narrower tread than other options, which can be beneficial for driving in snow or other slippery conditions. However, if you plan on doing any off-roading, this size may not be the best choice, as it has the least amount of ground clearance than the other options.

Additional Modification Requirements:

  • Speedometer Calibration: No additional modifications unless changing from 215/75/15 to 235/75/15 or 265/75/15. This will slightly increase the diameter of the time requiring speedometer calibration. 

33” Tires

The 33” tire size is a popular choice for the Bronco among off-road enthusiasts. This size offers up to 2” more ground clearance than the stock height tires, which makes it better suited for driving on off-road terrain. Additionally, taller tires will help to fill the fender gap when lifting your Bronco. Increasing your tire diameter does, however, increase the weight of the tire, which can lower the mile per gallon of your Bronco. 

Additional Modification Requirements:

  • Suspension: 2” Lift and possible body modifications*.
  • Speedometer Calibration: increased diameter tires will require speedometer calibration. 

35” Tires

If you're looking for more aggressive tire sizes for your Bronco, the 35” tires are the way to go. These tires offer even more ground clearance than the stock and 33” size, which makes them ideal for serious off-roading. However, the wider tires can be more expensive than the other options and may require additional modifications to fit properly.

Additional Modification Requirements:

  • Suspension: 4” Lift and possible body modifications*.
  • Speedometer Calibration: increased diameter tires will require speedometer calibration.

37” And Taller Tires

For the most aggressive Bronco, 37” and taller tires are going to be the best choice for your OBS Bronco. These are for the most lifted and most off-road rigs. They are going to be ideal for the trucks that are looking to be lifted 6” and over. 

Additional Modification Requirements:

  • Suspension: 6” Lift and possible body modifications*.
  • Speedometer Calibration: increased diameter tires will require speedometer calibration.
  • Increased Gearing: While this is optional, the increased diameter and weight of the tires will benefit from going to a numerical high gear. This will help to keep the acceleration and lower the load on the drivetrain. 
*Body modifications can vary depending on wheel style, back spacing, width, etc. 

Ultimately, the best tire size for your 1992-1996 Bronco depends on your individual needs and preferences. If you're primarily using your Bronco for daily commuting and occasional light off-roading, the stock size may be sufficient. However, if you're planning on tackling more challenging terrain, the taller tire sizes may be a better choice. Consider your budget, driving style, and the conditions you'll be driving in when making your decision, and choose the tire size that best meets your needs.
