    Do a search for Hummer or HMMWV tires. I think we have had at least a dozen new threads on those tires in the last few months.

    To summ it all up though:
    +Cheap
    +Easy to find

    -Biased
    -will develop flat spots
    -16.5" wheel size, (unless you are running H1 beadlocks)

    Nope. Even if they are brand new it is more than I would pay.

    I have sold 7 of them in the last 2 months. 6 were at about 90% tread, 1 was around 50-60%. I got $25 ea.

    About a year and a half ago, I sold a dozen of them for $75 each, but they were mounted on beadlocks and were brand new.

    If those are the tires you really want keep looking and you will find them cheaper

    EDIT: do they come with the rims? That would make teh $500 a little more reasonable

    This it the exact email from the guy I just gathered a set of four for a guy that misunderstood my shipping quote and didnt get them .

    two have 19/32 and two have 20/32 new ones they measure at 25/32

    I can measure a fith one to match the matching pairs i already have as the set of four

    Are you wanting tires and wheels or just tires?

    For tires and wheels and runflats assembled 500 for a set of four 600 for a set of five.

    For just tires 300 for the set of four 400 for five

    keep looking. i got a set of those...with the humvee beadlocks (8 bolt), runflats and all, 100$ and that ended up being to my door. I put the tires on another set of cheap steelies and LOVE them onroad, purely because they are CHEAP, 36s (running 5.13s, 1 tonnned DD), and actually ride decent, even with no balance...but hey, if you are willing to pay that much, ive got a set of some black steelies ill let go for 400 shipped...

    Don't waste your time. Slicky Mickey Baja's will do better in MUD than those. Why the military uses them I don't know. They suck in anything other than pavement. Get real tires.

    Ummm, how about this?

    Clicky

    I can probably help you find a set of 15x10 8 lugs if that is all you want. I think I know of a set... Let me know.

    I didn't look at the auction I thought it was the same auction as the used tires you listed on here.

    Sorry for not paying attention.

    Hey - no problem. I see what you are talking about though and I will measure the tread depth of mine and confront the seller of the tires/wheels about it.

    Take care, Josh
