    i have my stock h1 rims, my inserts fromm usa 6x6 and my rock rings,


    when I place the insert in the tire and try to bolt the two ruim halves up it is not going together very easy, I have 42 inch iroks and have heard about them being different or you have to trim some material from the insert???

    I have tried finding where I read that but cant find it,


    any tips or tricks??

    Well, if you're having issues, you can send them my way, and I'll send you my 39.5" TrXus STS's on 15" 589's. :D That's my dream wheel/tire combo you've got on your hands!

    i thought the same thing, but i just blasted the two halves together with an impact gun, then the inserts took shape with the tire. i still wasn't sure if they were going to hold, so i added 15 lbs of Nitrogen to each tire. over a weeks time they lost about 1 lb of N each. have new orings, USA 6x6 pvc's, new valve stems, on widened H1s, and on 44s. give Daniel a buzz, he was always willing to give me a hand.

    I have the exact same combo. Do you feel like the iroks are too thick at the beed or is it the shape of the pvc?

    Are yours 12 or 8 bolt?

    I had to stand on the ring even on my 38s(14.5s). It aslo helps to have something under the wheel to raise it up and let the tire hang below the rim. Put some weight into it skinny lol. Like said before I had to get them started with just a few threads and suck them down from there.

    Your a pic whore let see whats up:D

    Some of the Interco's have too much rubber in the bead for the stock hummer rims. Namely the larger Iroks. My 39.5's went on with very little hassel

    You should cut between 1/8" and 1/4" off of the beadlock insert.

    ended up trimming 1/4 inch out of the insert, if someone is real board or has time to kill they should do this every night, I just cant put into words how fun it is....

    :crazy:

    Gabe!! Finally a pic to show people what Ive been talking about.

    The 12blt H1s are a different animal than the 8blts. Notice how small the center is? You have to cut out the front center and weld a new center to the rear.

    Maybe Gabe can explain it better with more pics lol.:D

    You can cut them 2 ways, like Gabe has them cut inside the "ridge", or you can cut them on the other side of that "ridge" closer to the beadlock bolts. Cutting the "ridge" out give lots more room to get to the lugs and whatever else when recentered.

    I bought mine already recentered from Ryan22re. I dont know what the backspacing is but I can measure if needed. I like just having the center cut out of the outers, I think it makes it stronger and you dont get as much crap up in them. I can just get to the lugnuts so no biggie. I will say that putting them togeather with the Orings can be a biotch, but plenty of grease on the oring and tightening them in a criss cross pattern like a drumhead worked for me. I also would suggest putting in some airsoft pellets to balance them before you assemble.
