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.

I’ve now got to RTFM to see how to set things for the new rim configuration, watch this space!
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.

This is my Chevy S10 Xtreme that I’ve now had for a couple of years, not imported by me, purchased from a nice couple in Penzance.
I’ve changed out the Lexus style rear lights for a set of LED based units with side marker lights from LMC Truck in the States.
The load bed has also been coated with Line-X which I think has improved the look as the bed was pretty scratched.
I’ve got the original invoice for the vehicle which I obtained via the excellent GM Heritage Centre. The truck was originally supplied to a dealer called Schramm & Cox in Wentzville Missouri, you can see the options in the picture gallery. Some of the options that you would perhaps expect aren’t present such as, power windows and locking.
The previous owner had installed 20″ rims with spacers, I’m trying to locate a set of the original alloys to put it back to stock, These I think will have to come from the States.
As you can see it’s in pretty good nick, I eventually purchased a good quality cover imported from the States to protect it as it lives outside, the cheap covers just fell to pieces!
The cover was purchased from Ultimate Finish here in the UK, and the truck is featured here on their website,
Sarah at Ultimate was very helpful with the sourcing and supply of the cover.
