I just got an '88 Bronco II, and I can't help but think that it looks a bit like it skipped leg day. I found this picture and am wondering if you guys can help me identify wheel size/tire size/spacers used? I'm very new to this—so am very open to suggestions as well.

And if I can't use stock wheels, any suggestions of reliable places to find wheels that will fit around the manual lockers? Still want something timely, my wheels are just... very old.

Stock Explorer wheels will fit, I think these came from a 1991 I scrapped. Don't mind the missing hub, I blew it apart with P235/15s :p

If that's an actual photo of your BII it's absolutely beautiful.
Those wheels look like Ion (ion) brand to me. I have a set that appears identical, they're 15x8. I'll guess 235x75x15 on the tires. Personally, I like bullet hole wheels 'cause they're so easy to keep clean. "To each his own".

For-what-it's-worth: I'm not running those 15x8 wheels on my '88 4x4 right now because I can run 31x10.50x15 tires on stock (Alcoa) 15x7 wheels whereas the extra one inch width on the Ion wheels is all to the outside & makes the 31" tires rub the fenders in a turn.
