    the hummer tires are 36 x 12 x 16.5 .

    they won't fit on a stock chevy wheel.

    never ever match 16 to 16.5 rims

    or 16.5 to 16 rims.

    first combo will be so frigin hard to remove tire from rim as rim is tapered seat. and second big big possible tire blow off rim upon bead seating.

    Unless your stock rims are 16.5. Am I missing something here? Chevy did come out with stock 16.5 rims. What I don't know is if they had 16.5 rims wider than 6.5". That's a little narrow for a 12.5" tire.

    i was thinking stock chevy 1/2 ton as 15" wheel. not the 1-tons that came with 16.5, i even have some of them. just make sure your matching everything up.

    I have some stock sets of rims in my backyard i need to scrap.

    74 3/4ton factory 16.5's 8"wide (surprised to see these)

    79 3/4ton factory 16.5's 6"wide

    84 1-ton factory 16" 6" wide

    79 1/2 ton factory 15" 6" wide

    75 blazer rally's factory 15" 8" wide

    all of these are in my backyard and looks like they came factory and p.o. used these trucks as work trucks that were stock.

    A bunch of the hummers we took delivery of back in the day had cheap steel rims on them for transportation (with the goodyear MT tires). 16.5x 8 or 9 or maybe even 10" wide if memory serves me well. A bunch of the guys were taking the rims home to run on their personal rig with rather wide tires. Before they were released to the motorpool the standard rims with run flats were installed and the tires swapped over. A few weeks back i saw some of the rims on e-bay so they should be easy to find.
