That sounds a bit backwards? Fitting wheel spacers would only make the problem worse (if thats what he means, Not sure where else you could fit spacers?)

Where did you get the rims/sunnies & who recommended 0 offset? Around +10 or +12 would be perfect I think
+20 offset worked out fine for me , The front tyres just touch the mudflap (dont need to take them off though) & they dont touch the body mount either, With some lift later on I could go to a wider & taller tyre without too much trouble, Cant do that with 0 offset wheels

2011 Colorado LTR 3.0 TD
I bought this ute new (that was my first mistake!) and have made a substantial number of mods over four years in an effort to improve its off-road capability and camping convenience. It's finally at a stage I'm happy to stop spending money and just enjoy it!
In no particular order, these mods include:
- ARB unberbody protection
- OME suspension, 2" lift and 300kg constant load leaf springs
- Redback 3" straight pipe exhaust
- VRS 9,500lb winch w/ dyneema rope
- custom, colour-coded rock sliders/side rails
- custom, colour-coded steel tray, with
+ two spare wheel mounts
+ custom, colour-coded, angled tool boxes
+ LED tail lights
+ Ironman LED lights as reverse lights
+ second battery mounted under tray
+ custom fridge bracket bolted to tray on passenger side
+ colour-coded bracket on headboard with 33" LED light bar and Ironman work/camp lights on separate switches
+ 70L slimline water tank under tray
- 6 x ROH sunraysia rims with 265/75/16 Hankook muddies
- Heavy duty clutch
- Uniden 80ch UHF w/ GME 6.6db antenna
- Black Duck canvas seat covers
- Safari snorkel
- IPF spotties

- No chip, no lockers and no mods to the engine. I'm no mechanic so I don't mess around with things I don't fully understand!

Hope you like it!

Hey ColoradodoinOz I'm looking at doing the same sized wheel and tyre setup. Do yours scrub and do you know the offset of those rims?
Thanks

Hi Folks,

First login since 2009! as there seems to be an active Colorado community going on here.

Though you might like to see what a stock RC looks like. Picked this one up last week for $14K. 2009 3.0VCDi 150,000km

Gratuitous forklift flex shot. :rolleyes:

Plans for it are 265/75s, 2inch lift with Bilstein B6 shocks, straighten the tailgate out a bit. Move the towbar up and in and incorporate a wrap around tube to protect the tub corners. Might even trim them a bit higher for better corner clearance. Bull bar down the track.

I have come from a series of zooks so I am used to excellent entry and exit angles and short wheelbase. Might have to change my offroad driving style with this one :lol:

Are there any solutions for bolt on front recovery points?
