THE NEW ERA OF BIG CHROME AND HAND-PAINTED GRAPHICS
MAKING SOMETHING OLD LOOK NEW IS NOTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY IN TODAY’S FAST-PACED SOCIETY. Nowadays you can hire a professional to handle just about any automotive-related task that you need done, and if you pay enough, timeframes can be shortened dramatically. Along with hundreds of YouTube channels dedicated to this kind of subject, your options are vaster than ever before to build your truck the way you want it with the budget that’s available to you. Sure, we all want big billet wheels and yardstick paint jobs, (paint so deep you can see all 12 inches of a standing yardstick in the reflection), but sometimes our dollars are fewer than our desires.
Case in point with this 1970 Chevy C 10 that is currently rocking a set of 15-inch steelie wheels with pop-on dome center caps and a set of 255-70-15 tires. The truck looks clean and fun, but the thrill of the cruise just can’t be felt with those big bubbly tires. The paint on this truck is smooth and clean, so adding some custom pinstripes should enhance the appearance for an affordable price. With the help of our go-to experts at A-1 Tire and Wheel, we were able to choose the perfect fitting rim and rubber package that requires no spacers or special modifications. This truck was already lowered with BellTech Suspension components, so a few measurements had to be made before any orders were placed.
Vision Wheels and Atturo Tires are our combo of choice, and we think they fit this truck perfectly. A little classic and a little hot rod, just the way Chevy envisioned it in the ’60s, or so we assume. Check out the steps below and be sure to email or message us with any questions that come up.
With 15-inch steel wheels and dome styled center caps, this 1970 Chevy C10 looks cool, but it’s dated in design. Thick side walls and soft suspension ride nice and smooth, but the owner of this one wanted to feel the road and hit the corners with some speed.
