    thanks burns, but i have a rear 60, i'm looking for a front 60. I'm finding out if a guy on one of the local forums still has his 60 set for sell. he wanted 1k for both 60's. then i just have to deal with selling off the axles i dont need.

    My dad is going to kill me. I'm getting a front and rear dana 60 and 8 rims and tires for 1k on sunday..... there is no room in the garage for this stuff, so i'm going to have to start selling the stuff i'm not using asap. i'll have a total of 12 rims and tires. 4 of which are 16.5 x 10(too wide for me) i think another 4 that i'm getting are 16.5x10 also, and the other 4 i dont know about. hopefully i can sell em off and make a itty bit of money off of em. as far as i know, none of em have good tread. i know the 4 i already have are at about 20-30% tread life, and one is severely worn on one side to about 0% tread life.

    anybody know how to get rid of a bunch of rims and tires? if any of the 8 i'm getting are 16.5 x 8... i'll keep em and clean em up, but i don't know if i'll be that lucky.

    I wouldnt run a 16.5 unless they are hummer beadlocks. 16.5 dont have the safety bead, so you loose tires when aired down reallly fast

    there is another local guy selling hummer wheels for 25 each, so i'm going to pick up 4 or 5 and get them recentered. knocks out running a bfg, so i guess i'll just have to use a radial super swamper... oh well :D

    12 bolts are just harder to find, and come with a different insert.

    I wish I had whatever your on. 15"s are the most common size and therefore the cheapest. Every size up the tires get more expensive.

    If you talking about hummer wheels then yourr right, but they are 16.5" rim, not to be confused with the 16"

    Where from? i'm thinking about 38's with 6" lift coils from jeffs broncograveyard. I think that will be the upper limit of how big i can go for the wheeling around here. (tight wooded trails). i'm already going to be super wide and have a tough time just trying to fit some trails, but i think it will be worth it. I mean if wheeling was as easy as driving on the road.... it wouldnt be any fun.
