2021 Bronco Sport Badlands
Today took off the 17" stock wheels/tires and installed Black Rhino 18" Sandstorm wheels (18x8, 5x108) with BFG KO2 LT255/55R18 tires. Re-used the original TPMS. They do require hub rings for proper fit. Still need to install black lug nuts and modify original Ford Bronco center caps (with the Horse) to fit the new wheels.
The 255's fit the 8" wide wheels perfect and the vehicle has a great look from the side and rear. The 255's really fill the area and stay just at the stock fender flair width
Road tested around town and freeway and they roll smooth with NO rubbing, including steering lock to lock. I don't know if they will rub if taken off road.
As expected there is a SLIGHT increase with road/tire noise, well worth it achieving the look we wanted. Didn't notice any difference with handling and vehicle performance.

Great look , did you gain any more clearance underneath ? Looks like cactus gray more than white ?

Ordered the same wheels today. Wonder if 255/60 would fit? Copying is the biggest form of flattery. Still need to order tires.

My mistake I thought you had a badlands .
I believe OP does have a Badlands. His first post starts with, "Today took off the 17" stock wheels/tires and installed Black Rhino 18" Sandstorm wheels (18x8, 5x108) with BFG KO2 LT255/55R18 tires."

If you check the tire size calculator, at 255/55R18 is the same overall diameter as a 245/65R17.
