    Well, at least 8 hummer RIMS just got dropped off in my drive way! I won them thru a govliquidation auction for $42! Then I paid an arm and a leg to get them shipped to IL from Kentucky! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Took a look at one of the rims (had to tear thru the packaging) and it looks GREAT! I hope the others look just as good as this one!

    Now I need to decide what I'm going to do to get my axles set (spacers or DRW hubs) to fit the rims out WITHOUT welding in new centers. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    PICS LATER! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Props to Neil too... HE actually won the auction, and handed them to me since he's already got a set of bead locks. THANKS NEIL!
