HUMVEE tires

My 97 has 16.5 inch wheels with military take offs 37inch goodyears. I have a good source for these tires. What are your thoughts? I know I'm new to these vehicles.

You get why you pay for. There is a reason they are $75 a tire. They SUCK. I GAVE mine away and put on a 1/4 tread set of MTZs that out did the 3/4-7/8 tread military tires

On our HMMWV's they worked pretty good and lasted through some thick stuff... it all depends what terrain you use them in though..

Thanks for the replies. I really wasnt clear on the matter of cost vs performance.

Getting rid of the military tires and finding something that will fit on these 16.5" wheels that look as good as the Humvee tires.

U do get what you pay for.... (wet lawn )

Start over with new wheels. 16.5" wheels are obsolete. About the only thing left is super swampers and 15 year old humvee tires. I made the mistake of buying 16's for my truck two years ago. Wish I would have bought 17's.

I like my 20's, and to fit hummer tires you need at least 4" of lift, I used to get the tires for free, and give them away lol
