    Hummer wheels on 4wd's with big rubber.... Why does everyone want these wheels? I have access to these wheels, and was just a little curious why they are wanted so bad..

    thanks

    Cheap 8 lug beadlocks that clear 1 ton brakes, I guess. They seem a little narrow and with a lot of back spacing for my taste.

    most either run them with dually axles (cuz of so much backspacing, no need to swap to SRW hubs) and have them recentered to a more usable back spacing. the 12bolt ones are more desirable than the 8bolt ones

    The double beadlock is huge...most beadlocks are only 1 side of the bead... Also they are dot approved beadlocks...the onyl ones that are;)

    I know of at least 2 other aftermarket beadlock wheels that are DOT compliant. (the DOT doesn't "approve" any aftermarket parts, the parts are only made to comply to DOT standards, I know it's only samantics, but this is the way the DOT doesn't became libel by "approving" parts)

    Humvee wheels do have a DOT stamp,,,,,,but they also have a "For Military use only" stamp,,,,,,at least the 8 lug one's that I have do.

    Anyway, bitch'n wheels if you deal with the scrub radius from the backspacing :D

    X2. I just ordered mine earlier today. I'm going to use the duplicolor chrome rattle can stuff on the beadlock studs & nuts and gloss black the rest. With some chrome lugs should look sweet...

    Heres a picture of my Blazer with the H1 beadlocks. Powdercoated black and the ring is powder coated blue, they look real good I think. I am running the dually front axle with a 4" spacer in the rear.

    2" spacers all the way around is all that is needed.

    i think H1s are the way to go, especially with DRW axles. I'm running DRW 60/70 combo, stock backspacing on my 8 bolt H1s, widened to 12", new orings and PVC inserts courtesy of USA6x6, new valve stems, sandblasted, primered, and painted gloss black. all in all, i have almost $500 in my wheels, which is not too bad compared to most of the other beadlock vendors. if i could i'd probably go with the 12 bolts, but too late now. also i'll be adding rock rings to 'em which will be another 115-200+ dollars. all for the love of airing down. :D
