#1 of 43 Wheels and Tires for '04 Canyon
Oct 22, 2007 (6:10 pm)
I'm purchasing a 2004 Canyon Z71 4x4 and would like to know what size rims and tires to give the truck a beefier look. A friend of mine told me to put on a leveling kit and stick with a size 15" rim. Any suggestions???

I am not sure how big you can go with the wheel wells, but 33" or 35" look pretty good.

I put 16x8" rims and 245/75-16 tires on my '05 Canyon 4x4. I wasn't trying to get the "monster truck" look, as the set up is the same OD as the OE 265/75-15s. However, the handling is much improved, as the OE General tires are no longer on the truck, and the shorter sidewall of the 16" tires vs. the 15s also helped out.

My extended cab Colorado Z71 has 50,000 miles on it, and even though the OE General tires still have some tread left, the traction and handling has been getting worse. I wasn't terribly impressed with them to begin with, although I realize the light weight of the vehicle and high off road suspension doesn't help. I saw some A/T's on a Colorado just like mine, unfortunately I couldn't stop to look at them. I need good traction for off road, mud, or snowy conditions. There aren't many tires available in this size yet (265/75-15). I like the Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor for about $150 ea. Hercules has a Terra-Trac A/T for $120, and Cooper has an ART tire for $130. I'm leaning toward the Goodyear, although I'd like any suggestions about your experiences with tires. I don't think I'm interested in changing rims or tire size. Thanks for the info.

I seen one today with 31-10.50-15 bfg at at a store and i looked and it didnt look like they rubbed anywhere. A 265 and 31 both measure 29 1/2 in tall In guess i will order a set next month.

Hey Puregreen Ive got a 2005 Extended Cab with just the Z71 package not the 4wd. Anyways ive got 265-75-18's there a shade under 33's on my Colorado. When I had them put on I had to crank up the torsion bars a little bit and modify the frame a little bit because they rubbed if ya turned lock to lock. I think you'll be fine with 31-10.50-15's though anything bigger then 33's I think will need a little bit of a suspension lift.
