Thank you for this post, I just finished installing my 2.5” front Level from Supreme suspension. I’ve done some research on what size wheels and tires I can fit but not 100 percent certain. Need a little help if you dont mind. I would like to fit a 32” tire if possible without much “poke”.something like the Wildpeak or ridge Grappler on a 17 x 8 or 9 wheel. I think a 265/70r17 or 275/70r17 on a 0mm offset wheel is a good fit? All recommendations appreciated

I think if you want to avoid poke (and extra rubbing in some cases), an ideal offset is in the +12 to +18 range. On wider tires, at least at 275 and 285, you'll have more in the rear of the wheel well to contend with if you go +0 offset. Your 265/70r17 should fit fine with any offset and your level. 275/70r17 would probably require a little plastic trimming and I believe needs some lower offset to avoid slight frame rub.

To give you an idea of tire protrusion with +0, I found couple old pics of my Canyon. 285/70r17 on +0 offset.

I personally really like the look with 0 offset and was fine with the extra trimming required (and extra mud spray on the side of the truck ). Everyone has their own preference though.

I recently installed the Zone 1.25" level (which, I only saw an inch on both sides) and today had a set of Wrangler UltraTerrain AT 265/70/17 installed on the stock rims. And, they rub with the wheel fully turned in either direction. Haven't looked to see where the rub is but I suspect the front fender liner.

I have peaks set at 3" with 275/70-17s on zero offset, I did the front waffle mod and had to trim a bunch on the backside.. your 100% going to have to trim a decent amount

What is the largest tire I can go with 18” wheels? All the posts I see are with the 17” tires. I have the RC 2” leveling kit on the front.

Can I go wider?
Can I go with more sidewall?

use this calculator , compare the 17's guys put on , then with 18's to get the best comparison

thanks, that is very helpful.

Is there a safe margin you can increase by without having issues? For instance, OEM size is 265/60/18 and I would want to go 265/65/18. It is 3.4" increase in diameter.

How does the off-set work? Would love to be able to it a little more aggressive look.

Sorry, new to this and trying to figure out my options.

I’ve looked through here and didnt see any thing. If I keep my stock 17x8 wheels, what would adding a 1 to 1.5 spacer do for tire size? How much bigger could I go with no rubbing. I don’t want to modify anything. I would buy the fender liner relocation kit if anything.

You can try a sway bar drop bracket if its hitting the sway bar. The spacers may make the tires rub on the fender

or go to a 7mm spacer but woulld probably need new lugnuts too.
it is a little over 1/4inch thick just to get the tire off the frame, which then yoou loose a 1/4 inch of threads on the studs, they make lugnuts just for that..

so it seems like a safe bet is 265/65/18's. I would love to go wider but doubtful having a stock set-up in the rear.

Hey guys I have a 2017 2wd Colorado ECLB and was thinking about getting Kng’s shocks front and back and raising it up equally front and back because I plan to tow a 5.000 lbs. trailer off-road.

If I raise the front 2” would there be any problem putting a 2” block in the back? I was planning on getting the Camburg UCA.

They are both local to me so I was gonna head down there and ask but everything is shut down.

Any ideas on if it would hurt towing much? Really just looking to be able to have a smoother ride off-road and maybe some more clearance.

Taking a 5,000lb trailer off-road, like with a pindel hitch up moab? another words, how much off-road?
How do you plan on raising the front while still using the King Coil Overs? Spindle lift?
will the rear Kings be stock travel or one with longer travel? or use shock extensions?
Several other companies make less expensive UCA's that are probably just as good
