As long as the lug pattern matches, the only problem I see is if you have a 4WD truck, you need a place for your hubs to poke through.

The hole is big enough for the hub. The only problem I see is maybe backspacing. The rims are not here so I can not take some measurements. They are up in storage. The lug pattern is the same 8 on 6.5

I would.... But my Storage is some property 2 hours away. Before I made a specail tip up there I was hoping to get some insight here. I would just buy the tires and worry about it later but the rims I have now are 16.5's and the H2's are 17's. If they work right, they would be a nice rims for little to nothing. I used to pick these up for the Jeep for $125 a set.

Well, make a road trip out of it, we can't tell you much of anything more. Its up to you to take the chance, no one of us have prolly ever seen hummer rims on a Ford, I personally wouldn't take a like to it, but to each his own.

According to my offset book the H2 can be fitted with a wheel 0 to 15+ with a 125 hub bore where as the 86-97 3/4 ton 1 ton Ford is 0 to 15+ also with a 125 hub bore. Should be a perfect match !!
