    Have you drivin on them much? I was about to put in an order for a set of wheels but i need to know if they hold up doing 70mph down the freeway for an extended period of time. I dont want to get them to find out i cant even drive to the wheelin spot. Also what kind of backspacing did you get? I want to run at least a 14.5 without rubbing on the spring or having it look like a skate board.

    I would really appreciate any kind of input on these. Even if its just that your having problems keeping air in one of them. Thanks.

    You talking hummer rims? As long as it's welded right then no problem but fair warning Hummer rims don't ballance all that well to begin with. as long as the new plate was centered correctly then they should be fine.

    Why would they be any harder than a normal wheel to balance? They have a normal bead. I never balanced mine.
