H1 rims & Michelin XZL??? (*edit*)

so i came across a place near my house that sells surplus H1 tires and rims for a pretty good price. thing is, they're huge! in a totally hypothetical world what would it take to run these on a 6.4?

links:

Monster truck tire SALE. Used Military Michelin XZL for 20" rims - City of Toronto Tires, Rims For Sale - Kijiji City of Toronto Canada.

in the second link they mention size '14 R20' - what does that mean anyway?

47" tall tires are huge!!! R20 means the rim diameter. I would think you would need 12" or more of lift and modification to the fenders still.

okay so stupidity aside...

2.5" levelling kit and i should clear and a 37X12.5 tire?

i'm also kind of interested in such a large tire because i'm got a ZF6 and its geared a little lower than the auto i used to have. of course it doesn't hurt i could snaggle a set of these for real cheap and they certainly look the part.

What do you folks think of that tire?

37" tires with a 4.5" lift. I would run 35" maybe 36" tires on a leveling kit. JMHO.

ya to run the big ones you going to need a huge lift, especially considering their width, the 37's would fit with a 4.5" lift 35 is about as big as your going to go with a leveling kit. Also note the smallest rim that will fit on a 6.4 is 17", So the hummer tires wont fit either.
