    im in a debate and need to choose soon or this buggy wont get anywhere quick.

    decided on the 42's but I cant order them untill I choose rims


    h1

    -dual bead locks
    -heavy
    -16.5 size

    the h1 would be ready to go after buying new run flats the price jumps up there.. I found the rims for 300 about 2 hours away


    the h2's picked up for 150.00, the rim size seems common now, the bead lock kit from ballistic is about 110 per rim for what I want, and the rims would be lighter, but I have to find someone or pay to get them tigged.


    on one side I have easy and done but heavy, on the flipside the h2's are lighter.


    now the other drag is that I have a dually dana 60, so that makes using the h1's easy, but I would try to find srw hubs to run the h2's

    also noted is to use the h1's I would want to get a newer dually rear that is wide, if I stick with the h2 rims I dont incure the cost of a new rear axel, just gears.


    lots of pro's and con's seems one route is easy, the other is bitchin, when you factor having to either change the rear axel or get new hubs, it all seems to work even price wise, or close to it.


    help or input..:confused:

    I want to order tires bad,

    also 42's from 4wp is 1550 to my door with warranty, im torn if I should spend the money for a warranty:confused:

    You can get a 70 for the price of srw hubs...

    Id go h1's and run spacers out back. Double beadlock instead of single, cheaper, easier, easier to mount your own tires, proven. Then again they arent as flashy but who cares?

    for the my next set of rims down the road i was debating between h1's or h2's. i like the look of the h2's and they would look sweet with beadlocks, but the h1's look simply badass, especially when recentered

    Have you ever picked up a H1 wheel?? There not heavy at ALL. My DIY'd beadlocked 15's weigh more then them.

    42" iroks on 12 bolt H1s with rubber(I know) runflats weigh about 193lbs a piece. I am going to these but right now I have 38.5"s on 8 bolt H1s with mag runflats. They are all heavy once you get that big of a tire. The way I wheel I just carry an extra tire. The H1s are too easy to take apart and replace a tire than a staun or any other beadlock. Just my 2 cents.

    I'd go h2's, 42's and some stauns.

    Much lighter. Maybe a little more expensive, but I think worth it. That's how I'd do it if I had the money.

    With the H1s consider air pressures for 8 bolt or 12 bolt. The 8 bolt has a 35lb limit the 12 bolt is 50lbs.

    No one should be running more than 35 pounds in a 42 anyway :dunno:

    if i were in your position, i'd go with the H1s. simple proven and who cares about a littel more weight. it's not like you're building a samurai.:D

    I say H1's. Cheap, and reliable and for what you can end up with, hard to beat. You'll save some weight with cut down runflats if you get the 8 bolts. I cut mine down close to the base and they (the runflats) hardly weigh much at all, they're super light. I have not got the wheels back yet, so I can't say how much the whole wheel combo will weigh.

    I'd rather suffer the weight of steel, in the event I had to pound out a dented wheel. You won't even have the chance with aluminum.

    Yeah mine will have a rebar rock ring on the back, and traditional rock ring on the front. I don't expect I'll have any issues either.

    I'd call around and get specific prices for each option, then compare.
    Seems like everything I think I know how much something is, someone changes the price on me.
    That'll give you a more accurate view of everything.

    I run re-centered H1's and love them except for their road manners. No matter how much weigth I stick in or on the tire, there is alot of vibration from 55 to 65 mph...I have solved teh problem by driving faster...:D

    Also, IMO they are friggin heavy!:D

    My summary, if you are going to do a lot of freeway driving on your new 42's (this is kind of a joke, I just have a weird sense of humor) go H2, but if you want to run 8 psi and keep the tire on the rim while doing doughnuts...well, go H1.
