    ok please don\'t shoot me.

    i hate these questions as much as you but.....

    ian (eventualy) getting some 16.5 hummer beadlocks from a member, as soon as we can figuer a way for me to get them.
    and i figuer the best/cheapest bet is the used hummer 36 12.50 over on boyce.
    i will be installing a 4" lift spring in the front and makeing my own flip in the rear, but after the rims tire i will be luck to eat. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    if i cut the front of the front fender below the signal light and bring the rear right to the fire wall. And the trim and bob the rear. do you think they will fit for now?

    i would worry about articulation but its a stock 32/4 ton sub its a tank it had NO articulation! /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    and dose any one know wher to get cheap 16.5 radials? or are the bias ply realy not that bad?

    I did that same trim job with 38.5" tsl's on hummer beadlocks ... except its a K5 and there is still plenty of room for flex.

    I have the 37" HUMMV tires on my burb. All that was trimed was the back of the front fender from when I put on my 35". If you go near mud, DO NOT get the goodyear MTs they seriously suck. I bought mine for $120 for 5 and almost want my money back. TSLs have the most selection for 16.5 rims /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    Are you sure you want those slicks. My brother was so cheap he bought a used set of 36x12.50x16.5 goodyear hummer tires for his 1 ton crew cab srw. You could'nt go over 5 mph without shaking all over the road. IMHO I would not buy used hummer tires to drive on the road. They don't look too safe for me.

    I ran a new set of those Bias tires with no more problems than get from my Super Swampers. They just flat spot over night.

    Where do you live?

    they flat spot OVER NIGHT!?!?!?!? over night i thought mabey i i leave them sitting a week or something that they would flat spot holy crap.

    i live in southeren ontario canada. and this is my daily driver, i do mild wheeling, but want to build it up to do what ever i want,(not too much rocks, but i will be making sliders just in case i run across a few)

    I am shelling out big money on rims well its big when you dont got much with a child on the way.... so that i could get some good off road tire for fairly cheap /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    Re: ok please don\'t shoot me.

    oh yeah they'll flatspot over night, the first few miles are bumpy but after they warm up theyre ok.
    i had 4" springs and 36" TSLs and did some minor cutting and they fit fine. the rear end you wont have to touch. just the fronts. check out my webshots in my sig for pics of my fender job.
