    I don't think you can. the back spacing is too excessive. PM Throttle Boss, he's a Hummer Mech.

    It's a wheelbase thing, you wouldn't understand.

    They do have 7 inches of back spacing, but there are people out there running them. Pat Gremillion(sp?) is running them unmodified on a D60 front... And I saw another guy on the net running them on a YJ with 1.5" spacers in the front...

    i would liek to see if anyone has pics of them on a K5 so I can tell how they look....

    I am in the process of setting up Hummer late model 2 piece rims with beadlock/runflat setup on my truck. No way I can see hummer rims will fit a Dana 60 front stock. No way. Maybe a 8 lug 10 bolt or Dana 44, but not a Dana 60. Even with a dana 44 or 10 bolt front, it sure looks like the rim would hit the tie rod ends and maybe the wheel would hit the frame depending on the tire size. I am having to run dually hubs on my front Dana 60 to keep the rim off the brakes and tie rod ends and dually extenders on the 14 bolt. No way else they will fit. The Hummer rims have 7.25" of offset.

    I don't think you can run the Hummer Rims on a K5 without modifications. Just my opinion based on what I have experienced.

    I am sure once they were set up with the modifications needed, they would look very good.
