    the H1 hummer rims are a 16.5 inch rim that is a double beadlock design. There is a magnesium ring/runflat inside the rim that allows the innner and outer bead of the tire to be squeezed inbetween the magnesium piece and the lip of the rim. The rim itself is in two seperate halves and you basicaly bolt them together. The draw backs are that it is a narrow rim 8 or 9 inches and the stock hummer back spacing is really large so most cut out the original center and press or weld in a new center with less backspacing. There are also a lot of people who replace the magnesium runflat with a PVC insert that is lighter. A lot of people run them, because they are a cheap and readily availible. There isn't many options for 16.5 beadlocks, but lots of 16.5 off road tires. Check out www.USA6x6.com for some more info.

    ready mix...did you recenter your wheels? or did you just use the wheelspacers to eliminate having to do that?

    2" all the way around. I know there is at least one pic of them installed in the link I posted.
    I got them from OffRoad Overstock. Best price you will find.
