I apologise up front if this is a repeat, I tried searching and found nothing. I am looking for 16.5" 5 x 5.5 lug wheels so I can run humvee tires. Does anyone know of a manufacturer that makes these? I've seen 6-lug chevy wheels with 16.5 rims - Or do I need an adapter? Eventually I will convert mine to 1 ton running gear, but until then?

Last night, I searched Summit and found the US Wheels 70 series wheels. Looks as if they'll work well. I'll keep looking for possibly something black, or I'll just have a set of those "wagon wheel" style ones powdercoated.
Ebay has a bunch of 16.5's If you search 16.5x10 or whatever width you wasant to run, most of the people offer them in 5,6,8 lug models. I run the hunvee tires on my truck. 36x12.5x16.5 GY Wranger RT/II's. I have a F350 so its easier to find 16.5 in 8 lug. Your better off finding a nice set of 16's. Its hard to find 16.5's and more times they cost more.
i get about 9-10mpg, Id i drive hard a get like 7-8 lol. So I granny it most of the time.
Ouch... That's similar mileage that we get out of our farm truck ('91 f250 with a 460). My 1/2 ton with 3.08 gears and 31-10.50 A/T's was getting between 11 to 12 with the 300ci 6 cyl. I swapped the inline 6 out for the 351 just in time for my high-mileage M-50d tranny to kick the bucket, so I'm curious about mileage. $750 dollars from mantrans.com and six months later, I just got it started again last weekend. Full tune-up this weekend and we'll see what it can do. I'm preying for at least 13-14 hwy. If it won't do it, I'll lower gearing to see if that'll help.
