PostSubject: Set of Z71 Tahoe wheels and tires   Tue Nov 06, 2012 5:27 pm

I'm selling the other set of tires and honeycomb wheels from my Tahoe- It kills me to do so because I love both sets of wheels I have, and liked being able to swap them back and forth, these wheels kind of denote the "Z71" like the 17"s do for the Impala SS. But, I just don't think I need two sets for the truck as both have A/T tires, and while I like these a lot, I like the 18"s a little better.

These wheels only came on the Z71 Tahoes and Suburbans. They are 17" and have a set of RWL 265/70/17 Goodyear Wrangler AT/S mounted on them. These seemed to be a little better in the snow than my Bridgestone Duelers and the truck sits higher with them on, believe it or not.

The tires were very recent when I bought the truck in 7/2011, they'd been installed the previous winter I believe and only had a few thousand miles on them. I think the casting date ON the tires was in 2010 also, they aren't all old and dried out. I highly doubt they have more than 8-10K miles of use on them right now, I put the 18"s on my truck a few months after I got it, ran those until December of '11, put these 17's back on, then took them off again in March (I think). I was going to put them back on for the winter but figured I'd see if anyone was interested. There's nothing wrong with them!

The wheels are in nice shape, they do show some age but not bad at all. There are a few places where I believe wheel weights contributed to some of the clearcoat bubbling at the wheel lips, but it's not everywhere and they aren't all banged up or curbed to hell. A few of the centercaps show slight wear around the edges, some clear missing right at the rims edge, usual stuff. Not all corroded.

The screw on lugnut caps will be included with the wheels. Maybe a set of lugnuts for those too if I have them?

Id like to get $700 bucks out of them- the tires alone cost that new and the wheels when loose would probably fetch 300-400 bucks. Let me know. Very Happy

Here's a few pictures, I'll try to take some more showing closeups of the tread and whatnot if there's any interest...probably putting them up on CL and the Z71 forum (for more money since they aren't Badasses, lol). Nice upgrade to regular Tahoe/Silverado wheels, fits 1988+

They would look pretty cool on that Yukon Glen picked up! Arrow

GLWS! Someone better buy them so he can register the SS! Cool

Damn, I with those would fit on my Tacoma. Lug pattern is right but the hub is way different. Sad

Ugh, I really don't want to sell these things, I think I'm going to put them on the truck this weekend to force myself not to. Laughing

Either way, here are some pics...but I don't think anyone was really interested lol











Penny wasn't sitting right, so ignore that... Laughing

Those are beautiful man, if I had a half ton I would own them. If I can't buy them you should keep them

Hahaha. Maybe I will then. The replacement cost of them altogether is kinda high, so I should probably try to run on them for a few more years and then re-evaluate...lol

Bump. A little more mileage on them now but not a whole lot...maybe 2-3K. Still look the same... Smile

I'd entertain offers...
