    Colorado tire load question

    Ok. Sorry for the multiple posts, I don't see an edit option now on my previous posts. So assuming my actual height measurement is accurate, I only need a 3.4 inch additional drop. If I stick to the 8.5 in wide wheel then I can go a bit wider and taller now. This gives me a bit more options now...

    Colorado tire load question

    So I have a bit of an odd idea, I want to autocross my 2017 Chevy Colorado. Per SCCA regulations, track width must be wider than vehicle height, which is a bit of a tough one considering the stock height is 70.7 in vs 62.4 in track width. I have ordered a lowering kit to drop me down ~3.5 in...
