not straight up.

2nd gen bolt pattern is 6X120 while 1st gen is 6X139.7

You can add this adapter to make them work:

I'm a new member and recently purchased an 05 Colorado. Wanted to tease you guys with this recent purchase. Don't have the adaptors yet. Followed the link and was NOT happy about that price. So shopping around for now, so until then!! also, would this be a first? didn't see any other pics indicating other wise.

The link provided shows when you buy two or more they are $62 a piece, that's about average for any decent spacer or adapter.

You shouldn't cheap out on something like that. It will be the component holding your wheels to the truck...
For anyone that does this though, don't forget that the adapter will push the wheel offset out the width of the adapter, probably 1-2inches. Also make sure that the inner diameter for the hub is the same or get hubcentric rings to adapt.

My experience using spacer/adapters, if you run them long or any bit during the winter, they will corrode. Most are aluminum which will experience galvanic corrosion with the rest of the steel suspension pieces. Put an antisieze compound or something between the adapter and the rotor surface. Also becareful when removing the lug nuts if they've been on a long time. Can be quite corroded as well

I really am humbled being on here. I appreciate so much of the knowledge. I don't so much mind the adapter acting as a spacer because its a look I wanted to achieve anyways. As far as the aluminum, I do plan on running in the snow, how long are we talking before the corrosions becomes risky? I wouldn't mind changing out every 2 winters or so but hopefully they last longer than that. Lastly, I don't see on the link for the adapters the measurement for the inner diameter of the adapter. I know the hub pilot diameter is 3.35 in. Should I essentially ask for 6 x 139.7 to 6 x 120 adapters with an inner diameter of 3.35in? Again, thank you all so much for the support

Upon further investigation (because 3.35 inches sounded so wrong lol) The company cutom mkes the adapters and will ensure they be hub centric

No problem.
The corrosion won't as much compromise the adapter as much as make it very hard to remove or sometimes snap a lug. After a while, I ended up grinding a notch on each spacer so that I could fit a small chisel to assist removing them when I wanted to.
My brother who used adapters for wheels had a reaaaaaaaaaaally hard time getting them off recently. Due to the corrosion, his lug nuts were seized onto the adapter lugs. Stripped the nut clean. Had to drill off and ended up gouging the shoulder of the wheel, weld filled it and redrilled (they were rep Porsche wheels).

I would recommend using your stock wheels during the winter and the new wheels for all other times. Would benefit in that you don't damage the nice wheels with the winter salt and everything and don't have to worry about the adapters causing any problem. You could also run different tires for spring-fall use or off road or anything you want to do and have a better snow tire for the winter on the stock wheels. If you do use the adapters through the winter where salt is used, be liberal with anitsieze or something on the surface and possibly lug threads.

As far as the hub diameter goes, I have no idea what it actually is, if they were the same then that would be great but most times the adapter/spacer diameter is larger to fit more vehicles. With it being larger it can cause vibrations and put more stress on lugs.

The marker and headlights will be taken care of I also have to fix the dreaded ABS light before putting tags on and putting her on the road. Thanks for the feedback, I hope everyone enjoys.
I like the look, it doesn't clash despite the "hat tip" to the 2nd Gen colorados" in the wheels. I'll post better pics once the headlights are handled.
