    I found someone with a pallet of hummer biased ply style (16.5")beadlocks without runflats for $25 each. What would it cost to fis these for my truck? Is that a good deal?

    i know some guys doing the hummers right now
    you need to cut the centers out and buy new centers(around $50.00 each) to get the back spacing you need. then you need to have them welded in place
    so the cost of removing the centers, cost of new centers and welding them in...would run around $75.00 to $125.00 per rim

    i thought hummer wheels were so good was because they were two piece wheels that you could take apart easily. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    you can, but the backspacing will not work for are trucks, some have the mounting center ring on the outside ring and some have it on the inside ring /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Running a Dually D60 front end and Hummer beadlocks. Fits up just nice. The 7" of backspacing really is a killer.

    Good because the outer piece acts as a beadlock. Not good 'cause they are hard to balance and backspacing issues.

    Notice this part: [ QUOTE ]
    without runflats

    [/ QUOTE ] That makes them NOT beadlocks as the design needs the runflats in order to lock the beads. Some people cut the runflat rib off and just use the beadlock part, but to do that you need to start with all of it.
