Pretty pleased with how the rear wheels came out, playing card masking once again for the wheel silver and the acrylic lacquer.
Whilst I was at it I also refurbed the spare tyre that’s stored under the pickup bed and takes a lot of stick from the road debris and salt.
Used the spare to move the truck around whilst working on the other rims. Quite like the solid wheel look! Used the same high build primer as on the other wheels, decided to use Hammerite direct to rust paint for the final finish with no lacquer. Once done with the other rims the spare was placed back in it’s spot.
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.
