    What size tire can you run on HUMVEE beadlock wheels? I would like to know specifically the widths. How wide a tire can you run?

    I would like to see if anybody has any experience/photos. I am debating on trying to fit some 44-18.5s on a set. But I don't want to spend the money if they arn't going to fit.

    i think sapper has 39.5s mounted on recentered hummer rims. seen 42's mounted on them too. saw sappers rim tire combo in person, and i didnt see anything wrong with it. IIRC they are only 8.25 inches wide.

    y0ou can run wide tires easyly now.

    if you want to risk dealing with usa6x6, send him the front half of the rim and he will send you widend one enableing you run what ever widths you would like.
