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.

Took a trip to the Birmingham NEC to visit the 2016 Classic  Motor Show.

A number of celebrities such as Edd China and Mike Brewer were in attendance.

American cars were well represented across the board in terms of both vehicles and clubs.

I popped in and had a chat with the guys on the MAFCGB stand and was made very welcome!

A day out all around!

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!
