    I am planning to run Hummer wheels w/ steel run flats on 37" SSRs. Is anyone running this as a daily driver? Any issues?

    I'm soon to be running Hummer rims with "Magnesium" runflats with 38.5" Thornbirds daily! When I get some experiance at them, I'll let you know! I drive Hummers all day long with 37" tires at 60-80 mph! Don't have problems there!

    They all can go 80! It's just if you have the room to get them there!! And you don't get harassed by the range control or MPs /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    It also helps if the HumVee doesnt sit for 3-4 months at a time on Bias Ply tires... Driven alot of them after that and the tires dont want to go back to ROUND /forums/images/icons/mad.gif You tend to bounce all over the place after you pass 40mph!

    you do know that the stock backspacing on hummer rims is something like 7" dont you? You'll likely have steering issues unless you get the centers moved out. There's a few companies that do that, but it's around $80 a wheel. Didn't know if you already knew that since you didnt mention it. HTH,

    DID YOU SAY 80$$$$$ A WHEEL!!!!!!!!! i thought it was like 350$ a wheel to have someone cutout the centers and weld in new centers... i have a set of 5 rims and i'am debateing on either buying spacers , or haveing the centers moved or running 18" wide boggers in the back with 7" backspaceing and spacers in the front... but i hate the idea of spacers so if its only 80$ , tell me where they are? thank you ...
