The stuff on my wheels are coming off to expose the silver underneath, whoever put the ugly color blue on them used spray can evidently, it just lifts off to a certain extent..

The only actual place mine has worn off is around the bead where the tire machine ate it up and around the valve stem in the pursuit of air sealing wheels. With the old and super thick wheels no modern valve stem has a wide enough sealing surface, we got 3 of 4 sealed for now and I have since given up.
Someday I will get something that looks equally awesome and is more modern.

I've got a set of 4 wagon wheels that are thicker than the stock wagon wheels on my Bronco, the guy that I bought the 79 from ordered them special, they are Ford wheels, they have the 3 screws for the hubcaps on them, but they are thick.

I'll post a pic here in a bit of them versus the stock one's on the Bronco.

Here is the D-slot(Wagon) wheel thickness on the Bronco:


Here is a white one I got for my Scout:


And the black one I was talking about, these've got stainless steel valve stems:


I plan on painting the black one's white and then mounting a set 31x10.50's on em and putting em on the Bronco.

I have a couple sets of wheels laying around, and none of them satisfy me. I want something 10" wide or wider.

I don't really care how wide they are, I had a stock wagon wobble off of my 79 bronco going down the road about 25 mph one time, that was fun, I had to replace all the brake components and the wheel was bent where it mounted on the drum along w/ wallered out lug holes, I don't think that'll happen to these.

These are 15x10's and they've got Cooper Discoverer STT's 31x10.50's on them, I would use them but they've sat for so long the sidewall's are now crap, air one up and right back down it goes.

I always have mine torqued real good so they can't come off.
Mine are only 7 wide with 31 10.5's on em and the tires look huge from under the truck or off the truck, like my spare looks massive. But they don't stick out at all and I wish they did.

The 88 I had had a set of 31x10.50 Cooper Discoverer STT's and they stuck out past the fenders(even had the same wheels as yours) I don't have any pics as my original computer crashed and it was before I learned you could host images online.

There is a moderator on another forum(I wanna say it's Broncozone) that has an 83 stock height running 33's w/ no fender trimming and he says it doesn't rub at all, all I know is I don't like the look of these 235/75R/15's.

Depends on the truck really, I could clear 33's without a problem and there are a lot of trucks that didn't have a heavy suspension from the factory so they can barely clear 31's
It all depends in the size of the wheel, a 33 10.5 would have less chance of rub that a 31 12.5 (which are impossible to find) due to the actual amount of tire trying to squeeze in and out of the fenderwell when you turn. Backspacing has a lot to do with it as well.
Any tire over a stock 235 will rub the radius arm at full lock, not a big deal. It gets to be a problem when you are into the fenders or bumper, and then you can always trim and shim.
