    I turn to a section on upgrades to the GM TBI motor in my December issue, and right there is a picture of a K5 blasting through some snow and mud with a ColoradoK5.com sticker on the windshield. Hell yeah!

    Sweet! Man, I REALLY need a lift! Tough decision though. It's my daily driver, so I need somewhat decent mileage. I'm getting 13 right now. I don't know whether to go with a 4" or a 6". So many people here have a 4" and 33", it's not even funny. I guess a 6" and 35" would possibly be the best bet. Doesn't tire width kill the mileage? If so, I'd get those 34/9.50 TSLs.

    You might get a few more opinions if you start another post...

    Here's my 2 cents anyway. 4" plus radial 35's and some minor fender trimming. I still get 12+ with that combo...and a high of 13.7 mpg.

    34 x 950's look dumb on a K5...

    That's good, but a K5 is just a tad lighter than my beast. I said 34/9.50 because I could still keep the stock rims. I'm not gonna go buy the steel 15x8 'cause I want alloys or it's gonna stay stock. For money reasons, my choice would either be tires that can fit my stock rims or new rims with the same tires I have now. I was looking at the 33/10.50 BFG Mud Terrain when I was getting new tires, but they were a little bit too pricey.

    33x 12.5's or 35 x 12.5's would fit on either the Steel Ralley rims or the alloys...

    I still have a set of 35x12.5's on a set of 16.5x6.75" rims...4 years old 35,000 miles on em and they still have good tread left.

    While BFG makes killer tires, For the money I'd recommend going with General Grabbers or the new Procomp Xterrain.
    Ask trustyk5 how those general grabbers performed!!
