    Lots of guys run the H2's. No mention of problems that I've seen. Plus you can usually get a good package deal on the wheels with tires.

    from what I understand, if you source your one ton axles, get them from a dual wheel donor truck. The extra width of the axles combined with the offset of the hummer wheels will fit nicely.

    backspacing is an issue with the H1 wheels not the H2's. That is why you would need dual wheel. H2 rims don't have 7.25" of backspacing it can get confusing. H2's are a pretty common swap on 1 ton conversions especially if you can get a package deal on some take-offs.

    Itcan be an issue with H2 wheels.
    Mine rubbed my tie-rod dust boot, by jusy a real little bit. Others have reported they don't.
    Mine are on a D44. I used a 1/4" spacer.

    Miner are real close to the tie rod, but nothing to worry about, mounted on a 10 bolt front.
