Is any one else running hummer rims. Stock ones not the stazworks. Just curious what the look like mounted and how to do it. Is it hard????? Pics please if you have them /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
i spoke to Charles there. Just be VERY VERY carefull as to how you talk to this guys. He is an old timer that has his ways and is hard to get him to veer away from them. I had to talk to him for a while for him to do a couple of different things for me. It also took a little longer than he estimated but It's very worth it. These have been the best looking wheels i have seen. I know Stazworks make some nice FLATPLATE centers but this guy make them like OEM with the raised section in the middle to give it a more rigid center. Like I all the pics I have are in my Sig line.
When I had mine done, there were 4 other club members that had them done at the same time so we had 20 rims done at once. The price was $100 for each rim which included cutting your original center out of your rim, makeing a new center, sand blasting the rim where he is going to weld, and welding in the new center.
Here is a link to a post on Pirate that was amade a while back.
stock h-1's have 7.25" of backspacing, to run them on stock axles u must change the backspacing which in slang is re-centering them. u can run these rims in there stock form on a drw d60f. u can run spacers on the rear or a drw d70hd like me. i did a how to on this a long time ago, i'll see if i can find the link. here are some pics.
Here is mine with stock H1s and a rock rings welded on. This is a 76 with 6" lift and DRW Dana 60 front and Van width 14 bolt rear. If you are starting from scratch try and locate a HD70 like Boz has. It is wider and that is more deirable as i will have to run spacers (2"-3" each side) to get the width I want and when I go to a taller tire it will prevent rubbing the inner fenders on the rear.
