Make sure the wheel offset is correct. Some wheels have the center hub area further out than others leaving the tires sticking out of the wheel well not to mention this is bad for the suspension wear and tear.

Good point, Poncho. I'm using 16x8 wheels for both my winter and summer tires. The summer tires are on MB Motoring "Rocker" wheels that I bought from Discount Tire Direct. My winter tires are on ASA wheels that I got in a wheel/tire package from Tire Rack.
Both wheels fit well, however the MBs have a little less offset (1/8") that the ASAs.

Have a 2005 Canyon Ext. Cab 2wd with off road package. I have 10.50x31 on stock 15" rims. They just dont fill up the wheel wells, the truck still looks on the wimpy side. Actually the stock tires seemed bigger! What is the tallest tire I can use that will beef up my looks without a ton of modifications, i.e. lift kit? Maybe it's the massive fender flares that make the tires seem small?
Take care guys, thanks in advance!

I posted a couple months back to another guy on here looking for a bigger setup on his Colorado. I've got an 05 Colorado extended cab Z71 2wd that I have AMP Bitterroot 18" wheels with 265/70/18 Open Country A/T's on. I had to crank my torsion bars and notch the front frame a small amount to make the tires work. They only rub lock to lock every now and then. The tires are very quiet though and ride alot better then the stock tires. My 265/70's are a shade under 33's. I think when I checked the size they were 32.50's or something close to that. I think when these tires are worn out ill throw some Open Country's M/T's on.

As puregreen said, 32x10.5 on stock rims with the Z71 suspension fit fine with no rubbing/trimming. The fact it is a 4x4 doesn't matter either.
For the best pricing on a set of BFG AT/KOs I would suggest calling multiple places that sell tires in your area as well as go online and browse. Use shopping.google.com. That should bring up several listings.
Some places are discounttiredirect.com and tirerack.com.
Good luck and you should love the BFGs. Never have heard any complaints.
