Long time lurker, first time poster, so be gentle ;).
I just recently bought a base 04 Colorado LS z85 4x4. So far she's
been ok, besides the defective rear shock absorber that squeaked like
a kicked puppy, but it was under warranty, so it doesn't bother me too
I have a question about tire sizes. The Colorado came with
235/75r15's. I noticed that if I would've bought the z71 package, the
truck would have come with 265/70r15's. Those tires would give the
truck more than 1.75" in height.
If I were to buy some offroads at this size (265/70r15), what would
happen with the truck? How hard is to recalibrate the odom/speedometer
for the new tire sizes? What about the effect on gas mileage? Is this
totally not recommended to do?
I would really like to give the truck more height, and lifting it in
the next year or so wouldn't be out of the question.
I would really like to hear more from Colorado/Canyon owners, as their
doesn't seem to be a lot of info/feedback on them yet.
