Can't select plane objects when changing the "Display As" setting to "Wire" under "Viewport Display" tab. Plane object can only be selected when clicking directly on the plane's origin point. This problem seems to only affect planes. Blender 2.79b doesn't have this issue. Tried drawing a selection box with no success either.
Delete default cube (or delete four vertices to convert the cube into a plane object) > add a plane > Go to "Object" > Click on the arrow on the "Viewport Display" tab to reveal the settings, Change the "Display As" setting from "solid" to "wire" >Try to select the plane in the 3d viewport by clicking on the edges of the plane (Plane can only be selected when clicking directly on the plane's origin point).
Based on the default startup or an attached .blend file (as simple as possible).
