gday mate
they are sweet i tryed -22 i think offset on 16s with 285/75 and they scrubbed hard on the chassey . so i used my old steelies that are a 0 offset they don't stick out of the guards and they fit on full lock with no scrubbing on the guards and chassey

Hi Fellas

New to the page I have a 2013 Colorado LTZ (IN LOVE) after driving around small girly cars this was quite the upgrade. Sporting a Opposite Lock bull bar, TJM snorkel, knock off Intensitys, UHF. Still running the standard tires and after 60k they still have life in them.

Thinking a Bilstein 2" Lift and General Grabber SRLs 265/70/17s or 285/70/17s but concerned the larger might scrub?
Side bars and steps, winch, and a roof rack set up over the tub are on the wishlist.

Here's some pics

Hey DamienHitchcock. Nice truck. Dig it.

The wheels with 0 offset. Look great.

What width rims are they ?
I want the black steelies too but want 8" width.

0 offset looks bloody good.

front strut spacers in sits very large now ! 2" lift on front with 25mm strut spacers .
front measured at 935 mm with 2" pedders springs in after installing the 25mm strut spacers it sat at 975 mm
it sits bait higher then front but looks a lot better then the nose dive effect haha
also added a 35" light bar to roll bars and no it does not reflect off the roof , so bright at night
also removed them ugly side steps!

open to thoughts and future mods ?
hard cover going on late next week + bulbar later on

Looks awesome Damien,

Hi guys, looks like I'm coming on board the Colorado train. Looking forward to reading this thread and getting some ideas. Pick up mine on Friday. It's a 2013 with a few extras and 32,000Km on the clock. I see the services intervals are 15k...seems a bit long to me. Anyway, will get reading and posting in here.

Diff drop and NO ball joint spacers would be better. One negates the other.

yeah i would have thought the same until i had a good look
i could probably do a diff drop to be safe but i think they'll be alright
