    With dually axles, do you have to recenter the hummer wheels or do they fit about right as is? Thanks!

    iirc they fit ass is but the front is 1.5" or 2" different width than the front.

    not too bad, could always have spacers

    I feel sorry for the trees :D

    I cant tell from your pic... how far do they stick out beyond the wheel wells? any issues of clearance or scrub at full lock?


    I see hummer wheel sets on ebay for about 500... 4 new wheels and bfg's )takeoffs... anything I should watch out for?)


    thanks for the pics... nice trail rig

    paying too much like that!!

    are you getting h2 alum wheels?


    some people on here had been selling the hi surplus rims for cheaper than that.

    EDIT

    did a search and found diy4x was selling some at 300 a set with the 37" mil tires and runflats.

    i remember a member out of texes that was selling the wheels and run flats for something like 50 bucks a pop

    H1 wheels have the big backspacing. That is why they work on the dually axles.

    H2 wheels fit just like any other Chevy 8-lug SRW type wheel.

    ah yeah your way off, never mind the links, you can get the wheels and slap them on.

    the only assosation that the h2 has with the hummer is the name gm payed to use

    Yeah, my rig has been know to rub a tree or two in the past... but hey, JEEP trail my A$$.
    The tires don't stick out any further than they did w/ stock axles and a 10" wide rim. They don't hit or interfere w/ anything at full lock. They are perfect. Rearend is about 2" narrower track than the front which is about what they are stock as well. If you put H2 wheels on the dually axles they will stick WAY out, but you can physically do it, but add about another 4" of width per side.
    They did make aluminum H1 wheels, but they are EXPENSIVE and hard to find. White-Rhyno just took his H1 wheels and had them powdercoated in 2 different colors and they are beautiful... I was WAY to cheap for that, so I just rattle caned mine.
    In another month or 2 I am going to be parting out my rig... axles, tires, wheel, etc... so let me know what the 12 bolt H1 rims are going for w/ the beadlocks and runflats!!!

    pooh...

    whats your opinion about beadlocks... and runflats for a street truck tow vehicle... Im limited to 16.5 tires,,, not great... h1 wheels are cheap... but condition might be speculative as to how they were "used" now that so much surplus stuff is coming back from theatre
    do they balance ok... etc,,, do you need the runflats as a part of the h1 wheel or can they be eliminated?
    Since Im close to Stockton Wheel Ive been looking at having a set made in the size and backspacing I want... spendy yes,,, but still keeps the truck stock if I want to return it to same..... maybe I might even spring for a set of super single 19.5's.... tow rig dream tires

    You don't have to run the beadlocks or the runflats on the H1 wheels... you could just mount them up and run them. I have never tried to balance mine, so I can't help ya there. I got my wheels from my brother, and he ran them on his H1 w/ 38's and they were balanced.
