thanks to kcsport for hooking me up with his old rims/tires







sadly, the tires are WAAAAY too big for my suspension (they're 31x10, ******* things hit the bumper brackets if i turn too hard, lol) so in the next day or 2 im gonna hit discount tire n' get a set of stock sized ones (205/75/15) its a pity these are too large, they look ******* badass, and have practically no wear on em

TB crank and shackles, costs under 100 bucks to get roughly a 2" lift.


Just a thought ;)

i dont have a z71, so no torsion bars to crank...a 2wd lift costs well over $700 (not including labor), whereas tires run me bout $500....also a lift can **** with my warranty, n' i dont want to have to fight with the dealership every time i need work done

About fsking time!!!! Good god those steelies are hideous!

WTH?? Don't go with 205/75's.......$h*t, that's what's one those steelies.

Just get a set of those 2" lift springs and a buddy to help you swap the coils. It's not that hard. The only specialty tool you'd need is a spring compressor. Air helps, but you can still manage without it.

please do not put 205's back on there

if you really dont want to lift it, just get some 30x9.5's...they'll fit perfect

All you need to have right away would be some lift springs(2 in I guess). I don't know if any one makes coil spacers to be used to lift that high? We could knock out the front in a few hours. I'm free saturday.

im thinkin just go with a 225/75/15 on account of the fact that the local chevy dealership technicians are god damn retarded. i asked how much to recalibrate my speedometer for the 31's, n' this asshole actually told me 'we cant do that' so i asked him bout a 255/75/15 tire, and a 265/75/15 he says 'thats still too big, we couldn't do either of those'

i laughed and told him "you realize thats the size the z71 models come with from the FACTORY?" n' he just went into a pile of bullshit about how tire size is calculated...blah blah blah...
