Looking for military overstock Hmmwv H1 tires and rims - April 21, 2016, 05:00 PM

I am needing a set of 4 of these, often sold by Military overstock places, but I can't seem to find a place in he area that has them.

this is what they look like, anyone know where I can get some? I can find them online out of state, but the shipping kills it... suggestions?

Jesus. Did I count 20 lugs on that thing?!

I know it has an internal inflation system, but we're 20 lugs needed.

Humvee wheels are 2 pieces and bolt together which locks the beads of the tires to the wheel.


This is an r/c car wheel, but it is the same idea.





I wouldn't mind seeing what the OP plans to put these on

Scheise, this would be perfect! Unfortunately I'll be touring route 66 this May!

And the tires and wheels are going onto my 1974 K30 lifted truck... 12 inch lift kit, 1 inch body lift, currently has 33's but they make it look like a skateboard... I had 40s Super Swamper tires but they are not streetable being bias ply. These are cheap, strong as hell and radials. And at 37 inches tall they should till look good.

Something like a M1031 but I have more lift, custom bumpers, hood etc...

FWIW, what's the weight on a H1 wheel and assembly? The wheel you posted look like it had a half pound of lead weights hammered onto the rim to get it to balance.

Hahaha, with wheels that size balancing is a matter of a LOT of weighs

I see you're putting them on a P/U. How much stress is that extra weight going to put on the components? Have then been beefed up?

I only ask because I remember quite a few people back during the "Dubs" craze breaking axles, burning up brakes at an accelerated rate, wearing down wheel bearings, etc as rim sizes increase from 22 - 24 - into absurd 26 - 30 - 32" because their Escalades and Box Chevies were never designed to spin that much extra rotational mass on the hub.

If you read the thread you'd see that it currently has 40" Super Swamper radial tires... The Hummer tires and rimes are feathers compared to these, and my rig has Dana Axles and a 205 chain driven transfer case and a 4 speed with granny first gear. Basically nothing car break it.

Just an fyi, unless the wheels that you are running weigh 70#s a piece you are actually looking at adding about 40#s of weight to each corner of the truck if you go with the 2 piece h1 wheels with stock h1 tires. Your radial swampers are only 99 pounds per tire. Here is some helpful info on the hummer wheel setups. Some of the wheels with internal rubber beadlocks get up to 135 pounds before you even put a tire on them. Wheels/ Tires for Hummers

I have not weighted my 40 inch swampers and rims, good info though, I'll check it out.
