38x15.50 if you still want to go offroad and or turn.

40s would fit if it never had to do either of the above.

also depends on the age of the truck and type of front springs it has....if they are sagging...itll rub even with 38s in turns or offroading.

Bling wheels will add another problem, incorrect offset, your tires will stick out even farther [outside the hood and rear fender] and soon as you get a significant weight shift/compression you'll crack your hood.

There's very few wheels that have the correct offset for the H1 application.

The AM General 1 and 2 piece steels [early civy and military], the AMG/Hutchinson 1 and 2 piece aluminum alloys, and the Cepeks. And possibly the old Eagle 16.5" alloys if you can still find them.

Nothing else has the right offset/backspacing, and will put more wear and tear on the suspension geometry and ball joints.

So yeah, H1's with bling wheels are kinda silly. Save that crap for the h2's.

For the price of the Huchinsons, you can get a set from Stazworks and make a down payment on another truck. There was a guy named Blair Outlan selling sets of the Huchinsons, part powder coated black, part polished. They looked pretty tough and were one hell of a deal (about half price) as I recall but still expensive.

I just scour ebay and craigslist.

Got 2 sets of AMG Alloys [16.5 and 17's] for under 1000$ a set. Just got to keep an eye open for them. They were the one piece aluminum alloys though.

I'd like to get the 2 piece hutchinsons eventually, but the cheapest I saw those sell for was 500$ a rim, but they usually go for a bit more with that if theres rubber included.

I converted my H2 wheels for now. They seem to work fine and are cheap. I had the centers machined out and the wheel tapped for CTIS. I too want a set of Hutchensons...let the ebay scouring begin....I nee to find someone who blinged ther H1 out and wants to unload the stock wheels.

As much as a moron as you may think I am for wanting bling, just know Iím keeping my factory wheels for wheeling. I understand that off the shelf wheels will stick out past the body but Iím working with a wheel company to have some deep backspaced wheels made. I do appreciate all your input and I agree H2s are bling mobiles but I still think my H1 would look sick all blacked out on 24s.

Agreed on the H2/bling comments. I have (under the radar) been looking for long-haul tractor-trailer wheels (22.5"/24.5") to set Michelin 42" smooth tread freeway tires on to get me to the trails. I hear you can get 250kMi. out of a set on a lightweight truck. I'll never find out, but a smooth ride would be nice.

Apparently this is a pretty forgiving forum... I've been chastised for owning an AM General (not GM), both IRL, and IVL...regardless of what the truck was built for. At the same time....I've seen H2/3's do things that are inexplicably awesome...that was hard to admit (really).

Yep, the H2's and H3's are pretty darn capable. I did some pretty extreme stuff in my stock H2. And any truck that can fit 35's (H3) and 37's (H2) w/o a lift is impressive. That being said, the H1 is in a league of its own. The first time I took it off road I was amazed at the constant traction vs. the H2.

On my 2001 with no lift I ran 40" Irok's on the stock 17" wheels. No rubbing issues at all. I liked the RPM rop for highway driving also.

I was just kidding -- but I did hear that the 39.5's will fit fine on stock h1's but might rub a bit when offroad.

how do the boggers handle on the street?

eh...hard to answer as I dont know what is caused by the boggers...vs what is caused by the much stiffer suspension due to the spring spacers.

it rides like shit though =)
