Re: Largest tires on a stock Colorado?
well i just went through the tire dillemma on my 08 Z71, i do have the suspension max + 2 inch shackle lift though and a 17 inch rim, but u can just crank your front torsion bars and get the same height and the back end ya wont have an issue with anyways for a slightly bigger tire.
biggest tire i was able to fit without cutting away parts of my fender or bumper was a 265/70 which is a 32x10.8 it fits just perfect, doesn't rub at all even pushing it fairly hard off road (it comes within mm's of my front fender with the front tire cranked hitting a heavy heavy bump, so close infact that deep mud in the tread has rubbed on full turn ya can see the smear on the well! :)
i really really really wanted 285/70's but i couldn't even turn my wheels at a stand still without clipping my front bumper =/ lol
