    So I decided against recentering my hummer rims and found some cheap wagon wheels for my 3/4 ton axle swap. My question is I spent about 20 minutes tonight trying to get my hummer wheels off the 36" goodyears.........I got 2 bolts off which got me to thinking.

    Am I going to run into problems getting the tires off the hummer beadlocks to work on a regular rim since they have had the bead sandwiched in the beadlock for probably a little while?

    shouldn't be an issue. STIFF tires, so they will be a load of fun mounting up on the new rims, but with their size it hsouldn't be an issue. Its not like they are a 40 series with the same size sidewalls(like the damn EVOs have on them).

    haha mounting them is Wal-Mart's problem. I stopped by today and the guy was like ummm I can't balance a monster tire, I said don't worry about that I just need valve stems and air and tire on the wheel and he said he could do that.

    They are for sale for $75 plus shipping, but trying to unmount them is kick my butt so I don't know what my wonderful paint job will look like when I am done with them.......if I get them off........I am gonna give them hell but I may have to take out the grinder to get the dang bolts off.:mad:

    I soaked them in PB tonight, gonna hit them with PB again tomorrow before I start trying again..........they laughed at my Impact Wrench:o

    2 people would be easier for sure.

    I just hope I don't do all this and then they don't want to work good on my new wheels. They should though so one can only wait.

    They will work on regular rims just fine......

    See my truck. I have been running the HMMWV tire on a regular rim ever since my trp to the Badlands Off Road Park.
