hummer tires

Im looking for a cheap set of 37's for my truck with no luck. I keep seeing brand new hummer tires selling cheap and wanted to know how they ride and hold up for a daily driver.

I have had two sets of them so far. They hold up pretty good at the proper air pressure. First set got pretty good mileage comparable to any other 37" mud tire out there, Not so good on ice, not bad on wet pavement compared to my swampers, decent in the mud if you keep them spinning and clean.
Second, current set only has about 300 miles on them so far. Bought them with about 95% tread on ebay. Set of four 350 bucks shipped! I'm going to sipe them to see if they are any better on ice/snow this time. The only downfall is the 16.5 inch rim which is known for blowing beads but i hav'nt blown one yet, even offroad.

Noisy, knockin, fartin, smokin, chuggin, nasty, dirty, stinky, blown, turboed, natural aspirated, fuel waxin, oil leakin, torque makin love of my life Diesels.
96' F-350, Snorkel, Programmer, Big Injectors, hood stack, 10" lift, Locked and spooled Rockwells, 53" V-treads.
I also have an quad cab cummins, 6 speed, air raid, fass, 4 inch straight pipe, & Smarty tuner.
I like places so cold you can spread diesel fuel on your toast like apple jelly.

Which tire do you want to run.

Some of the Hummer tires are bias ply. Which I would not run on my truck. The radial ones are good years and the tread just wears out to quick.

Also watch out for the retreads as well.

They are all pretty good tires. There is about 5 diff types these days. But they are good and I have ran many of them. I assume you are looking at the Goodyears since the Army is fazing them out and they are flodding the marked. Go ahead and get them!

Thats what i assumed too. I'm part of the get rid of hummers deal right now over here in Iraq. Bias 36's are getting hard to find even if you do want them. The goodyears are the most common though.

Well I found a good deal on a set of the 36 bias plys but Ive been told their terrible for the street and snow compared to the radial 37's. Also, where can I find some nice 16.5" rims?
