All of my original sponsorships were because I had my truck in a booth at SEMA last year. The new/continued sponsorships were because of my active presence here on the forum and on social media... as well as the photography that I provide for the companies to use (not your regular cellphone pics lol). Also, the Colorado/Canyon market is still young and new..... not many people are willing/able to do these over-the-top builds that require some heavy modifications. Most people just stick with your out-of-the-box wheel/tire fitments coupled with a leveling kit and call it a day. There's nothing wrong with that, but that's not what companies want to use to showcase their products.

People think that having a partnership with a company is just about throwing on some decals and getting free stuff. It's not like that... at all. Especially if you want to keep those partnerships. I've seen many of companies pull their sponsorships because the individuals weren't actively representing the brand in a positive light, or providing the proper feedback to the company or to potential customers. You're basically an employee of the company and need to promote it as such!

On a different note: got the wheels and tires mounted up and installed! Needless to say.... I'm now having to "make them fit"
Still got a good bit of work to do to complete this "makeover".... but this was definitely the biggest hurdle, considering I had no idea what I was getting into when I decided to run this big of a wheel/tire setup. But, I don't mind a challenge and the outcome was definitely worth it! Better pics to come once Hurricane Matthew decides to stop beating up ol' SC!




Proper way to trim fenders... pull them off the truck!





Still got some work to do on making these fender flares work...

I'm not sure you'll be able to fit a 10" wide wheel with a +25.... I foresee you hitting the front calipers. My last setup was a 20x10 -25 and I had maybe a half inch between the spoke and caliper..... so you're +25 will be sitting another 2" inwards than my setup. And in my personal opinion, why go with a custom wheel and choose a wheel that will sit sunken into the fenders like the OEM wheels do? I'd at least do a +0 offset.

Here's a pic of my 20x10 -25 to show you how they sat with the fender:

I'm pretty excited to see how this shapes up. Loved your other build.

Are you still running a trifecta tune? I am leaning towards livernois, but trifecta is much more affordable here in Canada. I'm just afraid of the comments about it being a bull in a china shop tune.

I can't remember what the offset was it might have been a -25 then you can order just about any offset I don't want to have to cut the truck all up to fit wheels my buddy will call his guy at american force to make sure we get the right offset.Im gonna go with 22x10 I'd like to do 24x10 but they don't build the wheels that narrow in that size smallest size is 24x11 I think it will look good on polished wheels on a black truck.

I've only used the Livernois tune. The tune is awesome, and I love their customer service... you can actually CALL them if needed, something I heard that you can't do with Trifecta.

American Force isn't gonna tell you the "right" offset, because there is no "right" or "wrong" offset lol It's all about how YOU want your truck to look. If you're worried about trimming, you just need to watch your tire size. Certain widths and super aggressive negative offsets will yield a higher chance of rubbing... but if you're just doing a +0 to -25 offset, just watch your tire size.

Awesome. I thought I had read somewhere you were on trifecta. I'll keep saving my pennies.

When I was in the planning stages of the SEMA build, I may have mentioned going through them. But that was pre "me doing my homework" on and deciding to go with Livernois. You won't be disappointed! I'm actually about to email them to see if they can send me a tune update to compensate for these 35's!

Looks good Tilley. How much does the lift affect the driving dynamics verses the stock setup?

There's not really a way to answer that... I mean, obviously it has a higher center of gravity, and heavier wheels/tires lol But I've been driving my truck like this for so long now, I don't even remember how it rode when it was stock! I've got 22k miles on the truck, and my lift was originally installed at about 8k miles

Looks great! So do you think it's the new height, width, offset, or all 3 that's dictating the new trimming? Maybe you could highlight some of your problem areas for us? Thanks!

Width and offset are definitely the culprits. Front and rear lower edges of the fender, fender liner, body mount, pinch weld behind the fender liner...
Basically, if you're not ready to bust out the angle grinder and dremel.... I'd go with a more "conservative fitment".

There are 2 Rockstar Garage Colorado's that are running 37's... and after getting my 35's to fit, I have no idea how they managed to do it!!

Yeah I've seen them, nuts! Thanks for the help, just wondering what it might take to fit a 35/12.5. 20x9" -21 wheel after adapters, still on the fence about the whole setup, but I'm prepared to do some trimming lol.

Does the front end (steering) manage those tires alright? Does the feel like it needs regearing?

I have been debating trimming/rolling and 35's.....

Thanks in advance

I went into it expecting the worst... for it to be a huge difference from 33's. But to be completely honest, it's really not that noticeable! I was kind of in disbelief at first lol I'm still planning on getting 4.10 gears as soon as they're available though... I'd like for it to accelerate like it was stock and regain some MPG's.

New pic as well!

Those Grid GD-4's look great.

What finish are they?

Are those the Matte Black with the machined edge?
