    A tip for skinny front runner wheels for 2wd trucks. Colorado spares that are option ZAA on car-part.com, they are 16x4 steel wheels. They are light and cheap.

    Weighed my factory 2012 18s with Bridgestone 265/65/18s on them and they weigh 70 pounds per wheel and tire combo. I need to lighten things up!

    Hi I'm new to the thread obviously. So I don't know if I ask here or where but I recently bought a 1989 chevy c2500 for 150 dollars. It needed a fuel pump, battery, new gaskets, and oil change, and new tires. I've gotten everything done but the tires. My tires are currently 16 inches, my question is will I have to lift my truck if I use some 18 inches off of a 2002 chevy tahoe. They have the same lug pattern. Or would it just be better to get the stock size. I really don't wanna modify the truck more then I have to I just need a good solid work truck. And the tires are all I need so I wanna make sure I don't waste 200 dollars on tires that won't fit.

    You can get 18" tires in the same rolling diameter as the 16's and you shouldn't have any issues.
