Just got a new toy swb colorado S reg. it's got nearly worn out road tyres on it so first thing to think of is new tyres.
What is the largest size that can fit with no lift?
What's the largest with a small body lift?
What's the largest size with some spring lift?
Don't want to lift with springs too much for the sake of the CVs.
Any one done a little lift of both?
Need to get my head round which way to go with tyres.

Forgive old signature. Waiting for a good pic of new toy.

This Question will soon be answered by BOO !!!

But i will take a guess at :

1. 31" or 32"
2. 33"
3. 33"
and spring and body 35`s
I would worry about the power loss going bigger than 33"

285/75x16 will go on with a 2" body lift, 305/70x16 will too but you will need spacers.
