I am looking to buy a CHEVY COLORADO. I realy like the ZQ8 look, but don't like the ZQ8 price. Basically I like the wheels. My question is can I buy a base model COLORADO (Z85 suspention I believe) and put the ZQ8 wheels and tires on there. Will they fit and is there any concern over rubbing when the wheel is fully turned? Any help would be appreciated.

THANKS

The basic difference between a Z85 and a ZQ8 besides the wheels is suspension and painted grille and bumpers. You can get a Z85 with the Street Pak option to get the painted grille and bumpers. The wheels will fit without any problems whether you get 2004-2006 ZQ8 wheels (17") or 2007 ZQ8 wheels (18"). Just understand that the wheel to fender gap will be about .5"-1" bigger due to the smaller diameter of the ZQ8 tires if you keep the stock Z85 suspension.
