Square Body C10 GMC Chevrolet with 22" bonspeed Pallisade Wheels

 The square body Chevrolet and GMC pick-up trucks are hotter than ever!  These trucks were made for years (1973-1987) with very little change.  The square body has cavernous wheel housings that allow for big wheels and tires.

The 1987 C10 shown here was built by the boys at Hill's Hot Rods in Texas.  The super clean truck retains the factory chrome and paint scheme. Jason Hill took the perfect example and repainted it for the perfect look!

Like we said the square body C10 trucks can take lots of wheel.  The C10 here rides on a complete Air-Ride system, but has no other modification.

The wheels are bonspeed Pallisade's and they are 22X8.5 in the front and 22X10 in the rear. As you can see our bonspeed fitment still gives a nice lip in the rear!

Do you want your C10 or other vehicle to look this good, give us a call at 1.888.999.7258.

1970 Nova SS 20" bonspeed Malibu Wheels & Air Ride

This super clean 1970 Nova SS is from Nebraska and it is a fantastic example of the Chevy II.  The car rides on Air Ride suspension and the rearend was narrowed 1" on each side.  The narrowed rear allowed for a larger lip on the rear rims.

The bonspeed wheels are Malibu style and in the front are 20X8.5 and the rear are 20X10.

When using an air suspension we always recommend that you move the wheels slightly in like on this Nova.  That way when the car is dropped it is in the center of the wheel housing.

1959 Chevrolet Impala with bonspeed QUASAR Billet Wheels

Shot on a freeway in Texas ala the lens of John Jackson ( this 1959 Chevy Impala is a super clean custom cruiser. The black, red and sandy silver winged wonder rides smooth on bonspeed forged billet "Quasar" style wheels.

The bonspeed rolling stock under the wings are 20X8.5 in front and 20X10 in the rear. The car has been massaged greatly to accept the wheels and huge rear lips with no problems.  This car does look good slammed to the ground.
The rear view of this slammed-pala shows the super wide rubber!

From the fully-prepped big block chevy drivetrain to the hand stitched and very smooth red leather interior this Texas sheet metal is a big star!

The rear deck is a big as Texas. While the Impala sits on this on-ramp John Jackson reflected the image to the camera's chip.

Strange Ford Falcon with bonspeed Brushed Big Block Wheels

Under a sinister sky sits this super sano Ford Falcon, it is a contrast to the rusting factory.  Tim Strange at Strange Motion built this fast Ford a few years back to be showcased at the world famous SEMA show in Las vegas, Nevada.  To set the car apart Tim had bonspeed whittle some Big Block style wheels finished in brush/clear finish.
bonspeed "Big Block" Brushed/Clear Finish
 This year (2010) the car was blown apart and rebuilt after being driven for several years.  When the crew at Strange bolted it all back together, Tim and Carrie hauled it to Detroit for the Autorama. The screaming yellow zonker wowed the crowds at the show like it was just out of the shop for the first time.
Not just a pretty face the chassis is a hand fabricated tubular set-up 
From the late-model drivetrain, to the quick-change rearend and full tubular chassis this is a Falcon that flys high! Strange built this car to handle, drive and perform like a modern gt racer.  A liberal use of brushed metal is the perfect juxtaposition to the bright yellow paint.

These incredible images of the Strange Ford Falcon are by the renowned van traveling, lens-meister John Jackson from Texas.
We like this guy because he shoots crazy good photos, but because he also has a great eye for wheels.  Watch for many more of his pics on this blog!
