16.5s are rather common with bigger trucks. So it wouldn't be too hard.

All of your pre super dutys came with 8 lug 16.5's It's pretty comon it the older trucks
Once again, the problem is not finding one that is 16.5", :p it's finding a 16.5" that is also 5x4.5 bolt pattern.

Or you could just skip the hassle of looking for wheels by just swapping in some new axles. :thumbsup: :D

Maybe a wheel company would be willing to do a custom order or know somebody that makes an adapter of some sort.

but be aware that if you arent going to double beadlock it, you arent going to be able to airdown your tries as 16.5s dont use a bead

They're alright tires, they'll last a while on the road, the rubber they're made out of is pretty hard. We have them on some of our vehicles and they work alright offroad though I don't have to much experience with them. I bet if you got your hands on a tire groover you could make them much more capable offroad.

Most Hummer H1s came with 37x12.50x16.5s like this one:

464729_139_full.jpg


But I believe those are two different manufacturers.

Both tires are made by goodyear, one is the goodyear r/t and the other one is the goodyear MT (the ones you have pictured). From what I've gathered the R/T is an older tire that they used to but on the HMMWVs but they've sinve gone to the MT. Most of our vehicles have the MTs

Imho the only wheels worth running with them would be hummer beadlocks or a similiar beadlock wheel.
