    anyone know if you can widen hummer rims? i put a set of 38.5X16X16.5 tsl's on hummer double beadlock rims... needless to say, they are eggs! i think i would have to run them at like 18-20 psi to loose the egg shape..... but i was wondering if i could get them widened to like 10-12 inches. i dunno, i imagine if i do that ill have to re-center them as well or end up with a 9 inch backspace??? :confused: whew.... any ideas???????

    i am sure something could be done, the prob i can think of is that the nsert would have to be made wider aswell. usa6x6 makes/has pvpinserts for the hummers maybe they could make you new ones.

    but buy the time you do that maybe a set of custom beadlock rims would be cheaper overall, stazworks, or usa6x6, although i would recomend readding up on 6x6 befor you do busness with him, a simple forum search under "usa6x6" will tell you alot

    contact 6x6 and see if they widen them at all, he does do alot of hummer rims so he might know.
