Hummer h1 wheels

Has anyone tried the H1 wheels? 7" of back spacing seems like a lot.

Seems to me they would be rub city, unless you had tons of lift, but even then they would probably rub the springs.

Yes I have and no they will not even bolt on to the front end of a stock set up D44 or D60, they will hit everything.....way to off set.

You can them them recentered fairly cheap, just remember that the 16.5 really limits you to tire availability like the 36's and 37's that come on those rims.

If I got a look at them to see how they are made I would know about changing the back spacing. Don't they bolt together so troops can easily mount a tire? If not then I could cut the center out with my plasma, jig them up and weld them back together. As for the tires, I run 16.5" mags with 37" hummer pull offs on my 78 reg cab. Thanks for the info fellas.

I dont have the link on this computer, but someone does sell centers you can weld in with the back spacing that fits. Also there was someone that had offset steering blocks that were supposed to work with those wheels as well. I forgot what size spacer you would need but I think it was like 3.5"-4" or something along those lines

I think that's what these were originally. Trailworthy Fab made them along with offering the mil tires.

Checked out their site, nice stuff, a little high on price considering you can buy all 4 stock wheels for less than the price of 1 stock wheel from them. I might just buy a set and modify them myself. Yours look good though.

If you want to use them in a stock form then you need a 76" wms. Stock single wheel rears are in the 67" range. So basically if you have a 60 front youd need the dual wheel hubs. If youve got a 44 then get the front drw spacers from a 88-up chevy or 94-up dodge. For the rear get a dual wheel rearend from a pickup. Cant be from a cab and chassis truck. Those have a 72" wms. Then you can get a 2" spacer. Another option is if you can find a drw 14b or d70 hd from a chevy you can swap the drw hubs for the srw hubs and youd be set. Have to figure out brakes but with a disc swap its not hard. I actually have all the stuff to do it to my current crew but decided to go with adually instead. If you need wheels i have a set of 5 i might sell.

What about H2 wheels?

I'm running H2 17" aluminum wheels with 315 BFG All Terrains on my '75 F350 Crew longbed. They needed to have the center holes opened up to fit over the early Dana 60 rear full-floating hubs. The only rubbing is in front on the wheel well trim pieces.

H2 wheels are a whole different ballgame than the H1 wheels.
