    I finally got my hummer rims back from the wheel shop. I had them cut out the old centers, make new centers and weld them in at 3.75 backspacing. I can't wait to install them.
    Here is the link to the bigger pics.

    Those are SWEET! I know you had a bulk deal with the wheel shop but did he give you any idea on what it would cost to do a single set of 4 wheels?

    Just curious, what size tire will you be running?

    THat's cool man, I thought about running an insert along the idea of holes lined up with the bolts, that way you could run the bolts backwards and they wouldn't stick out and grab the rocks all the time! Too bad I didn't think of this before I had the inserts made! Looks great man! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    One of the other guys in my club didn't get his wheels in time for the package deal and he was quoted $125 a piece. It's worth it unless you pay an arm and a leg for the rims to start with.

    I'm currently run the 37in hummer tires, but when these wear out I will probably step up to a 38.5 or 39, maybe even a 40. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    So it's 125 including the rim??? Does he just sell those inserts?? Also, do you know where he is in Lousiana? Thanks - Doug

    Thanks for the good info Esteban!

    Was the company easy to deal with? If I were to send them a set of wheels this summer is there anyone in particular I should talk to? Is there a secret code word I should tell them so they'll remember your wheels (and do the same to mine)?

    Thanks again!

    Good deal. Are you mounting the 37's on there or waiting for a new set of tires.. I'm thinking of stepping down from the 38.5's to the 37's.

    Like Flexy said. You have to supply the rim and he will do the rest. If you wanted just the centers made he charges the same price. I don't know why he does it that way but it's what he said.

    Call them before you send them the wheels. (323 567 3998) Chuck is the person I dealt with. All you have to do is tell them that Esteban, the guy with the 20 hummer rims sent you. I'm sure they won't forget all those rims.

    As far as working with them. Well lets just say that they are set in thier oldtime ways and don't veer form them at all. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif I wasn't really happy with the way they run things but they do AWESOME work. I was told it's was going to be 3 weeks and it ended up being 4.5.
