    They won't fit since the center bores and bolt patterns are different. Your Colorado has 6x120 while the Canyon has 6x5.5.

    You may want to consider getting aftermarket rims. Try 4wheelonline. They have kmc, american racing and xd wheels that will fit your truck.

    What tires did you end up buying?

    Congratulations on your new 2004 Colorado Z71! It's always exciting to make modifications to your vehicle to give it a more personalized and beefy look. Regarding your question about wheel and tire sizing, here are some things to consider:
    The 15x7.5 wheel size with a -12 offset and 3.78" backspacing should fit your Colorado without any clearance issues, but it's always a good idea to test-fit the wheels before making a final decision.
    The 31x10.5 R15 BF Goodrich Advantage TA Sport KO2 tires are slightly larger than the stock tire size for your Colorado. They will add about 2 inches to the overall diameter of your wheels and tires, which may cause some rubbing or clearance issues depending on your suspension setup.
    Without knowing the specific suspension setup on the other Colorado you saw with the same wheel and tire size, it's difficult to say whether or not a leveling kit would be required. However, it's common for Colorado owners to install a leveling kit to achieve a more aggressive stance and improve off-road performance.
    A leveling kit will help to lift the front of your truck to make it level with the rear, which can help to prevent rubbing and clearance issues. It's also possible that you may need to do some trimming of the fender flares or inner fender liners to prevent rubbing.
