Military Tires

I'm sure there is already a thread on here about military tires but I'm getting some tires really soon. Does anyone know what sizes there are for a 16" wheel? I know there are more for a 16.5 but I would like to run oem wheels if possible. Also how long do the tires last? Thanks in advance!

The only sizes they have are 16.5 and 20 inch tires, i was looking into this for my truck as you can get them for like 100 a piece. what i found is this site Trail Worthy Fab they sell hummer tires and hummer wheels and for a fee they will cut out 8x6.5 bolt pattern and weld our 8x170mm pattern in the wheel so we can run them. the good thing about hummer rims if you dont know you can take them apart and mount tires to them in your garage which saves tons of money on mounting tires along with the cheap price of the tires

as far as wear from what i hear is they wear just like any other mud terrain tire

I had 11x16XL military michelins on my M-715. They will fit an 8" x16 wheel. I think they also make that size in xml a little different tread pattern. They are radial tires and went down the road smooth at 65 to 70. I think they are speed rated for no more than 62mph. I wish I could find a set of 9x16, they are about 36" tall and would fit my alcoas perfect. The 11x16 size measure about 38.5" tall for new set. They are hard to find. The set I purchased had to be shipped from an used tire dealer in Southern California. Paid $1,000.00 plus shipping.

Yeah I would only consider the 36x9 but I have heard these are very rare and hard to find.

Pretty easy to find these; just go to the motor pool, and have the motor sergeant order a set of tires against one of the unit's bumper numbers. There you go. Just don't get caught. Uncle Sam frowns on that sort of thing.
