Need some help with these tires

Hey guys,

Im looking to put some 265/65r17 Falken Wildpeak ATs on my stock 2018 colorado LT. I have searched the forum and understand this is the stock size on the trailboss but that is with Duratrec tires. The stock size on my LT calls for 255/65r17. Will the Falkens rub 265/65r17?

A 265/65r17 Duratrec does not rub but these falkens have a pretty beefy side lugs and deep tread.

Anyone running 265/65r17 Falkens on stock truck. Should i stick with 255/65r17? I do not wish to lift/level the truck.

Thank you thank you thank you!

The side lugs on the DuraTracs are more aggressive than the Wild Peaks, so no, it won't rub.
All factory issue size tires and wheels will cross fit to all other models with out any interference. It's when you add these: tire beyond 31"D & 255W, add offset, a lift/level kit, is when issues arise.

Do you get any rubbing at full lock?

If you don't want to deal with ANY potential rubbing then stick with the 265/65/17. The LT265/70/17 AT3W will fit on a stock height truck with no rubbing or at least it did on my work truck but as soon as I put the 2" lift on it the tires rubbed the frame a little at full steering lock. If you're ok with a little bit of rubbing then the 265/70/17 will fit and won't cause any damage.

LT265/70/17 at stock height no rub.

Interesting how some trucks get rubbing and others don't with the same size and make tire....The 265/70/17 AT3W's rubbed on my truck a bit on the frame, but the same size tire in a BFG KO2 didn't rub at all....Go Figure. I also tried the Duratracs in a 265/65/17 and they fit perfect with no rubbing at all.

Our individual alignment specs are difference so I'm sure that plays a part but it is interesting. I removed the 7mm spacers from MY truck to see if the new wheels alone would create enough clearance and they do on the drivers side but the passanger side still has a tiny bit of rub.

So now I don't give absolutes when giving advice. If someone can't handle any rubbing at all I say stick with the OEM sizes and no larger than a 265/65/17. :)

Pretty bizarre when vehicles with the same frame and suspension can actually have different fitment problems with the same size and make of tire using the same wheels. Oh Well, the joy of truck ownership..

It is bizarre. I still haven't pulled the trigger on my level kit/install (saving up). I'm going with the RC level kit or Eibach leveling shocks and I'm concerned about running into some kind of rubbing issue. 265 70 17 KO2s & 17-inch wheels w 18 mm offset.

Slight rub or not I'm still doing it. It's mainly for aesthetics.

You're going to run a pretty safe combo. The only potential I can see for rubbing is maybe on a mud guard if you have them. It's going to look awesome so stick with that.

If you're not in any hurry for a leveling kit, I have a complete set of Bilstein RHA's front and rear on my truck that I'm going to be selling soon(About 2 months or less) as I'm switching to an Icon Stage 4 kit for my truck. The shocks only have about 6k on them and are in perfect working order although they may be a bit dirty. The fronts would be complete with the diesel coils already installed so it would be basically a plug and play install.

Yeah, I'm pretty stoked as well. It's not that the Bilsteins were bad because they are a very nice setup, light years better than stock, but when I installed them I stupidly put a 1" block in the rear as I miscalculated how much lift I would get in the front. The Bilsteins are perfect for leveling these trucks, but only if you leave the rear at stock height and don't use a block. If it wasn't for the fact I got a screaming deal from a buddy of mine, who happens to live in CA, on the Icon setup, I wouldn't have bought the complete stage 4 kit. I was just planning on buying a set of Icon non resi front shocks and a set of their Delta joint UCA's to get the extra 1" of lift in the front, to level the truck. I will post pics after it is installed and give an update on how the system works in my truck.

VERY interested in your opinion after running the Bilsteins. No custom tune on the Icons right?

Yeah, No custom tune on the Icons. The Stage 4 just have the reservoirs on the front and rear with no adjustment, it's the Stage 5 kit that has the CDCV adjustments on the shock reservoirs. It should be night and day in ride quality considering the cost difference between the Icons and Bilsteins. That said, with the addition of the Icon UCA's that's going to give the front suspension more movement which should translate to a better ride, however comparing a custom made shock to a mass produced shock really isn't a fair comparison, but I will report back after I have the Icon setup installed and I've driven the truck for awhile.

Gotcha. I meant custom valving. Some shops will custom tune the valving for your specific setup. They can make the non-adjustable shocks work like the CDCV shocks at a specific setting. I.e. a lot of Taco owners prefer the CDCV setting of 0 which makes the shocks ride softer. A custom tune on a non-CDCV shock can make it ride like a CDCV at 0 or whatever you want. Non-CDCV shocks are tuned to ride like CDCV at setting 4.
