    I found a decent set of hummer wheels and was just wondering how much it would cost and the pros and cons of doing them to get them to work for the Blazer either recentering or spacers, what is involved and cost.
    Hope that made sense. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
    Thanks,

    I was recentering hummer rims for 100cdn each (about 75 usd) including the centers. they were 3/8" plate and tapered to properly fit lug nuts.

    Because $600 for glorified innertubes is a big pill to swallow. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Seriously, I know that those things work, but there are other benefits to the Hummer rims. Easy to mount tires, easy to dismount tires, no extra parts to mess with while mounting tires, no paying a tire store to mount tires or convince them to monkey with glorified innertubes. Did I mention that you can get Hummer wheels real cheap? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Thanks. When I will check that link. When I searched I searched for "Hummer wheels" and "Hummer beadlocks". Must have forgotten about "Hummer rims". /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
