    I won a $300 GC from USA6x6 at the spring run this year with the Midwest K5 Thing crowd in Arkansas, I decided to use it on these inserts!

    What do you guys think!??? I'll have the choice to keep these and run them - or run a set of magnesium runflats. I'll be running my 42" TSLs with my Hummer rims that should be here in a week or two.

    What would you guys suggest? I often thought I'd run the mag. run flats... because they shouldn't bind with the 42s unless I run something like <4-5 psi.

    So, I'll leave it to you all. What do I do!???

    Dan, those look like those big plastic pipes they use in plumbing and sewers, etc. True? If so, how thick are they and whats the diameter of them assembled? I may talk to my bro-in-law and see if he can get me some from his work for cheap. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Dan, As you know I am running my 42's on hummer rims with the mag runflat/beadlock. I haven't experienced a problem so far. The only issue I have trying to get them balanced. Do you have a set for Magnesium runflats already? If not, then use the inserts. However if you do, then I would recommend running the Mag's. I like the way they bolt together better and if you have to you can still run on the wheel until you can get to where you can repair the tire.

    Here's my only problem man... If I were to air down low enuf to binf one of the tires on the insert, and I killed a tire that way... I'd be ULTRA pissed. Ya know? Nothing like killin a perfectly good 42" TSL! /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    Whats the harm in running these inserts really? Nothing that I can imagine!??? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    KO Maybe this is a stupid question but, all that I've heard about these critters is that they're used in Hummer rims that are split, right? So why do these pvc sections come in two pieces per wheel?? Honestly I don't know I'm just curious. Thanks in advance.

    There are 8 of them in that pic, so that works out to less than $40 each. Not too bad, really. Try finding PVC that size and see what it costs, then add in the amount of time it takes to cut them up and make the connecting plates.

    No, what's funny is that he doesn't deliver to his paying customers, yet Dan got his for free and on time!

    As pipe gets bigger diameter, the wall thickness has to go up to support the pressure rating. That is most likely normal schedule 40 PVC. They also make schedule 80 and 120 with even thicker walls. I would bet my Blazer that Daniel DOES NOT have that pipe specially made. 2 minutes on Google get this:

    Yeah, if they were custom made they would be one piece, with maybe one opening so you could decrease the diameter with a ratchet strap to get it into the tire and eliminate a point of failure. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    All i was sayins is Water main line is blue, sewer is green. thats the main. Not pipe coming out of a pumpstation or water tower where naturally you do have to have a beefier pipe. Sewer main is some brittle, real thin stuff. Not pressurized so why make it heavy. Im just talking about the mains, not PVC in some industrial application
