    Just wanted to pass along info on a place I bought some wheels from this past weekend.

    I found this company via a post on Pirate (sorry, can't find it now). They get $50 per rim (surplus, unmodified, 8 bolt style Hummer wheel) and $20 per mag runflat. they have a large quantity of wheels in stock, as well as, a big variety of tires (tiny - gigantic).

    I called this guy a couple of weeks ago and asked if I could possibly pick up the wheels on a Sunday since I could not make it during the week, he said; "no problem". I drove there yesterday and he had the set ready, had someone load them for me and was extremely nice. I would definitely buy from him again!

    They do have rims, right? I emailed their general info email address and the reply said they only had Hummer tires but not rims. Is it just Ken with the hookup?

    Hey TK5, there is a guy up near Clarksville, right across the KY line that sells those rims that is probably closer to you. I bought my set from him 4 for $250 w/ runflats. I'll have to dig up his info if you want it, but he is on Tennesseeoffroad.com as 4x4shop or something similar if you are interested. Good guy to deal with, I had a few problems from some mis-communications on my part but I'd buy from him again no doubt.

    The do indeed have Hummer rims, I picked up 5 rims with mag runflats (no tires) from Ken last sunday. Ken is the only contact I have for the Anniston lacation but you can also try a guy named Bobby that is in the Atlanta area (cell # 770-519-1911).

    Bobby was the original contact listed in a thread on Pirate, he turned me on to Ken once we figured out Ken was closer to me. My understanding is that they both work for the same company.

    John,let me know if anyone in the area is interested in some more. My in-laws live in Anniston and I can borrow a trailer and bring some back next time we go up.
