I would LOVE to take advantage of the h1 military takeoff tire deal on ebay. You can buy 37" mtr's all day that are like new for $600 a set but they are military takeoffs and the rim size is 16.5"

Change the bolt pattern on your axle shafts or get adapters. Just make sure your brakes and steering stuff clears the rims.

There is a company that had advertised here that makes a nice two piece adapter to run hummer rims... Stand by while I search for it

They are a great option... I have gone back and forth myself over getting them.
