Military Tires And Humvee Rims

Ok, so i can get these tires:


from 100Dollarman - Tires!

There 36x12.5R16.5 Which brings up multiple problems.

1. Will i be able to fit 36s with just a 3" lift? (i will shim and cut bumper as needed)
2. Bias Plys - For $400 for all 4, thats not bad. I dont mind a suffered ride quality. But what are characteristics of a Bias-Ply? Ive heard of them flat spotting, but there extremely tough... What have you noticed about bias plys?

3. 16.5" rim. So im too cheap to buy a real 16.5" rim, so id just get the matching Humvee rim..

for $60 each, thats pretty cool. BUT
There beadlocks... Thats illegal, right? to use on road?
Will they bolt up? i read they were 8 on 6.5 but also heard the hub size is different. Has anyone used them??

I just think it would look awesome with those tires

we have run the hummer beadlocks for years on our trail rigs and they are a bad *** rim, cant hardly hurt em. Im not sure if you have the metric bolt pattern or not but they fit the basic old 8lug pattern, the same one that dodge and chevy run..... dont know if that helps. as far as legal goes ive run on the roads around here quite a bit with beadlocks on my jeep and never been questioned bout my wheels, bout everything else but never the wheels. and last but not least i have known a guy who used to run those military tires on his cummins in the oil fields and they did god in the mud but the had a pretty harsh ride.

Also those rims look like they might be missin some parts. there is usually either a 2 piece aluminum, or one piece rubber run flat in those rims, but as long as the other tree pieces are there youll be alright.

You can run them but you will need spacers as the BS is over 6" Tires will ride very hard and will flat spot esp when cold. 16.5"..IMO are not safe.

yeah I had for got about that we usually run dually hubs on the front 60s when we plan on running the hummer wheels. but on the same note we run the back ones flipped to get the same width, wouldnt run em on the road that way but weve done it for years on buggies.
