    which way would you go

    i have a 1 ton dually front 4.56 gears for the buggy, plan is for 42 inch irocks at the moment

    so.. run the h1 beadlock rims with out recentering them, advantage is dual bead locks and cheap, plus no messing with the dana 60

    or

    run the h2 rims, swap to srw hubs and beadlock them using some custome made centers, then have someone else tig them since I am just learning $$$$$$$$$$ advantage is a narrower front, lighter weight and less side wall


    i see cheaper, but I also see function and effort and time involved as well.

    also noted is that I have yet to put gears or purchase gears for the 14 bolt I blew up, so instead of running spacers and regearing I could trace down a 14 bolt dually rear....

    I am really wanting to buy my tires but I am at a loss about what rims to go use

    i voted for the 15' h1 rims for the uniqueness factor :wink1:


    really though, h1's are nice to have, you can break them down in the field if you want too, only bad part is recentering them if you arent running dually stuff and an o ring leakin

    and youd be better off finding a d70 dually rear, more clearance and gearing options and more plentiful

    If the width of the h1 rims are wide enough for you, I would just get a dually rear to match the front and run them. Spares are also plentifull that way, so if you bend a rim you just throw another one on. No recentering new rims everytime something happens.

    My H1's are 16.5".... Do they make H1 rims in a 15" flavor??:confused:

    Either way I voted H1 because they're cheap and awesome

    Not that I know of. All 16.5's to my knowledge. The military ones anyway.

    Thats what I was thinking too, but I'm too much of a n00b to say "All are 16.5"

    Nonetheless, an awesome wheel. :waytogo:

    Never heard of 15" h1 wheels, I think someone "cough" supersize75k5 "cough" has been sniffing to many paint fumes

    Why do you need beadlocks to pound Sycamore ?

    I like the DRW 60 and wide rear option with h1 wheels.

    BTW, I have a D70hd that is the same width as a DRW D60 for sale! ;)
