    Default Tire size thread...

    I drive a 2005 3.5L Colorado z85,

    And im looking to add rims and tires this spring. My question is, what are the biggest tires i can comfortably fit on 16's without any lift or modifications?

    Also, how much would a lift cost, and is there a downside?

    I have the Z71 4X4 so it has 265R70x17" tires. If you don't get any answers here, try posting in one of our other forums. Good luck!

    hey bud, just a bit of input.. but when i was looking to put bigger tires on my silverado.. i went to discount (basically any tire dealer) and had someone who deals in tires/wheels every day come out and give me their advice as far as what i could fit.

    best-o-luck to ya! post some pics of your ride as it comes along!
