Hummer H2 wheels?

I've searched and searched and can not find any info on this...

Don't hate, but has anyone ran or know anyone that has ran H2 rims on a superduty...more specifically a 99-04?

Whats going through my head is that you can buy 8x170 to 8x6.5 adaptors/spacers. But would that work being that the H2's are hub centric just like our wheels? Also what about the backspacing, would they stick out obnoxiously..especially with the spacer/adaptor?

I'm also fully aware spacers are not the 'best' but I'm just tossing some ideas around.

Thanks!!!

I was thinking something like this

only with the proper lug patterns obviously...then have the H2 centers machined to match the diameter of the hub centric flange on the adapters....get what i mean?

think it will work?

H2 wheels are hub centric but not like our wheels. The Ford and the GM have different hub sizes. So your adapter would have to be hub centric to Ford and the hub flange where the H2 wheel bolts up would have to be hub centric to the H2 wheel, and/or you'd have to have hubcentric rings on both sides of the adapter. The F250 wheel and H2 wheel have different backspacing. In addition to that you would be changing the backspacing further by adding the adapter so they probably would stick out quite a bit. You'd also be creating a potential weak link at all four corners. Not to mention the amount of money you'd spend on H2 wheels, adapters, 2 full sets of lugs, possibly 2 sets of hub rings and/or machining you could probably buy a nice set of wheels that would fit your truck perfectly. Nothing is impossible but it sounds like a lot of trouble.

I wouldn't do it if it was mine but If you decide to do it post pics and let us know what it actually took.
