Well guys and galls I've finally saved enough money to buy some new wheels and tires.:th_woot: I'm still on a fairly tight budget so my wheel choices are a little limited. I'll probably end up going with either a 255/70r16 or 265/70r16 tire depending on which one doesn't rub. My truck is a white 06 cc z85 4x4 with a tbar crank. Here are a couple of wheels I had in mind:
These are 16x8 0 offset
#1


These are 16x8.5 +18 offset
#2


I had d-windows on my old colorado and may end up going that route just to save some money. If anyone has any suggestions/comments please feel free to share :salute:

An 8.5" wheel with +18 offset may rub with a 265 mounted to it. That equates to a 5.5" backspace. I think my backspace is 5.25 and I have about a finger width of clearance with 265's.
I THINK my wheels are +12 with 8.5" width. They MIGHT be +18 though.
If it does not rub, it will be very close. And you may clear for normal driving, but steering over bumps or using it off road may result in rubbing.

The 5"ish wheels look good on Z85. 4-4.5" of backspace on Z85's look to stick out a lot. Even my tires are an inch outside of the fenders.

Thanks for the input guys. I may go with a 245/75/16 tire just to be on the safe side. As for the wheels I'll keep looking for more options with 4.75 or more backspacing. Those damn cragars are sounding better all the time.lol
