In this episode of Project White Trash, the wheels are set in motion, literally. Alex agonizes over getting a wheel and tire combination that gives the truck that vintage vibe that he’s envisioning. After a lot of researching, he settles on a rare set of wheels with the proper width and backspace to fit the truck. The wheels have seen better days and are going to need some serious repair. Follow along as he turns a set of 5-spokes that were destined for the scrap pile into something that screams ’60s coolness.
Part five of Project White Trash focuses on swapping out the antiquated Eaton HO52 rear axle out of the 1964 Chevy truck and installing a 12-bolt out of a 1979 Chevrolet Suburban. It also highlights the subtle differences between the axles in the 1960 to 1987 Chevy and GMC trucks, as well as giving some great tips on how to make a lowered truck ride much better.
