Chevrolet S10 Xtreme Speedo Accuracy, Meet the SCU2000

After fitting the new rims speedo accuracy has proved to be an issue.

When I bought the truck it had the 20’s fitted as opposed to the standard 16’s and I noticed the  Jet SCU2000 fitted to adjust for the rim change effect on the speedo and no doubt remove the top speed limitation.

New Rims for the S10 Xtreme 

I have never liked the rims that were on my S10 Xtreme when I bought it. The main worry was the offset of the wheels needing large wheel spacers. Just getting the wheel stud extensions off the original wheel studs was a challenge in itself. I think the Silver Rallye Wheels look a lot better. I have some baby moon caps to fit but they are a bit of a loose fit and will need adjustment

Spec is as follows :
15×8 Silver Rallye and 235/60×15 Galaxy RWL on the front

15×10 Silver Rallye and 275/60×15 Galaxy RWL on the rear

I wanted to have as much wheel and tyre as possible without spacers.

Chevy S10 Xtreme Review From Back in the Day

Being that I own an Xtreme it was interesting to look back at a review around the time of original release.

The road test can be found here on pickuptruck.com

It comes out well, and IMHO is still a really nice vehicle, but then I would say that!
