    Default Colorado Wheels on a Tahoe

    I am thinking of putting these 17's on my truck to spend some time cleaning my other wheels. I am thining of running them on my 04 Tahoe then. Any thoughts?

    Looks like they are off either a Colorado or Trailblazer. IMO, they might look OK on a Silverado but not a Tahoe.

    Thanks for the reply. I did confirm that they are off a Colorado. I wanted a different look, but I think I am going to pass on these.

    Probably a good choice. They have high positive offset, so they would sit farther inside from the edge of the wheelwell than your stock wheels, and I haven't been able to confirm, but the bolt pattern might be 0.7mm smaller, which is enough to cause problems when it comes to wheels.

    I think I may go with the 20 inch Silverado LTZ wheels for the Tahoe. I have a victory red NNBS crew cab with the Torq Thrust ST's and have had a terrrible time with vibration at highway speed. Someone told me these Tahoes and Silverados need hub centric wheels or they vibrate.

    Peter....your Correct the Tahoe's have a Different(Larger)Bolt Pattern than the Colorado's,

    ***The Tahoe's have a............6 lug 5.5 inch or 139.7 mm High Offset
    ***The Colorado's have a.......6 lug 5.5 inch or 139 mm High Positive Offset

    Most vehicles need hub-centric wheels or they'll vibrate. If you get get wheels that aren't hub-centric then you'll need a set of hub rings.

    If they're off a Colorado, they won't fit on the Tahoe...
