    I am in the process of aquiring a set of hummvee rims and need to know where to get the center cutouts to move the offset, and where to get the PVC inserts for the beadlock part. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I agree that stazworks is your best bet. You might be able to find his info over on the pirate board. Or you could just wait for his site to be up. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    don't mean to hijack, but...I was wanting to run some hummer rims too...just wondering what all is involved in getting them to fit GM 1-ton axles? I know you have to change the backspacing, but is there anything else? and anyone know a good place to get a set of them cheap?

    john over at stazworks will hook you up there might be a little wait if you want him to build you custom rims though.

    I finaly recieved my new double beadlocks that I ordered a while back and I can now say they were worth the wait.
    they are very heavy duty and look awesome. you will pay almost the same amount of money buying all the parts you need and recentering the hummer wheels as you would buying one of his sets custom made for your rig.

    if his site isnt working give him a call @(715)333-5591 or
    his cell @(715)299-3512 or his home @(715)333-7250 try all the numbers till you get him and say where you got the number he might be a little easier on your wallet if he knows people are talking about him on the boards.

    I will say again very quality stuff /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    they are a double beadlock design with a plastic insert inside the wheel sandwiching the bead of the tire inbetween both beads of the wheel so they are much better than your standard beadlock wheel.
    no matter what you do you can not lose a bead unlike the standard one sided beadlock ring that you see on the trail.
    these are also much lighter than the hummer beadlocks.

    we weighed one of my new wheels with a 42" TSL swamper mounted and it was right at 150 pounds my other regular style steel beadlock with a 38.5 mickey thompson baja claw was closer to 175 pounds so they are suprisingly light for as beefy as they are.
