10" wide rims / wheels on 2012 Z71 with no mods?
Hey guys, I tried searching and found promising threads with no answers or answers that don't pertain to my situation.
I'm looking for some cheap steel rims to put tires on for a 2 hour drive to the beach and then driving on sand (I really like that I can clean my daily driver rims with window cleaner - no scratches). It's difficult finding the right size and fishing season is already upon me. I need to jump on a local Craigslist deal.
I have a 2012 Z71 4x4 which currently has the factory 17" x 7" chrome, 6 lug 5.5" rims on it.
I found a rim set with 6 / 5.5" lug pattern, but it's 15" x 10". I think I can buy tires with enough wall height to make up for the 2" rim diameter difference (no?) but can I use 10" (3" wider than stock) wide rims without mods like spacers and larger fender flares? Again, I won't be using these much and want to keep cost as low as possible.
