the military tires are on 16.5 rims, but your gonna need 6 inches of lift or better, and they run 47x12.50r16.5 on the military hummers btw, good luck

I'm thinking you will need atleast that most likely more...

I couldn't tell you for sure but I'm thinking between 10"-14"

ahh your looking at the tires on 7 ton's and stuff, i was thinking the hummer tires, yeah there is one guy but i havent seen him post in forever running 20x10 with those xxml or what ever michelin tires you see on those trucks, i have no idea what lift he has, but it is very custom, and some very low gears in his axles


EDIT: sorry i meant 37x12.50R16.5 hummer rims n tires
