I put Hummer Wheels on My Chevy. I had to lift the front end about 2 inches with new torsion arm mounts and trim the little plastic piece on the bottom of the bumper, then they fit. I used the OEM Chevy Caps.

Thats cool. Where did you get the wheels? and why did you choose Hummer wheels?

Same 8 bolt pattern, the proper offset, and you can find them cheap. I bought two sets of wheels, one set is chromed but this set had the tires on them so I mounted them. I'm going to get the chromes mounted and probably sell these off. :)

They are 315's (70?) 17's off of an H2. They measure out at about 33.5 inches. They are very tight in the front wheel well but I never off road so I am happy with them. If I was going to buy tires (these came with the wheels) I would buy 285's. The speedo is off by 12 mph at 60!!!

They are the stock sizes, however, you're right about the size, according to tirerack they are 34.5 inches in diameter.

I bought two small camlike adapters and it lifted the nose enough to get em in. We counted 21 turns to loosen the torsion arms but only put 13 turns back in them with the new mounts. They hit the inner fender ever so slightly and I had to trim about a half inch of plastic at the front edge.


I was looking for rims and found this set with the tires for 320 bucks, so I'm gonna use em up. :) :)
