yup, 9.75 would work for mil spec hummer tires... the radial 37's would be better...

However, finding the rims to fit the stupid 170mm bolt pattern is not easy. I was laughed at when I asked about them a few months ago... was able to find a set used from a buddy and traded for them... no support for the 16.5's at all... too bad that's all I have for my mud trucks!

CHUCK, the OBS trucks are 8x6.5", not 165mm... might be close, but 'by the book', it's a inch measurement not metric. Nice thing there, is that it's the same across the board... you can bolt up aftermarket rims that fit a chevy, dodge of any year, or ford before '97... why Ford changed then, I have no idea. Stupid move in my book. The diffrence is no more than an 1/8" from 6.5" to 170mm, all it did is make the superdutys have a ba$tard size wheel... That has to be my only real complaint, other than early '99 'cup throwers'.
