Smile Hummer Wheels

I am seriously looking at running the split Hummer wheels on my 404. I would like to hear from anyone who has run/is running them on a 404. Mitchell, I ve heard you are running a Hummer variant but I haven t found any specifics. Any information would be greatly appreciated before I shell out the cash : )

Thanks,

Coach,

There are two options, buy them already done (which is still an affordable option) or I have a good friend who is a master welder and thinks it would be little trouble. He has been handling all my other mods so far.

Nobody has even bolted a set on their truck????????? : (

common

I hear that hummer rims are a common mod for mogs

I have a friend in Mont Rose NY area that could prob. do it too.

hard part is balancing the rim after you do it. If you dont drive it at hwy speeds like I do it wont matter.

Yeah, it can be done. Plenty of people on the Mogml list have done it. I've taken plenty of measurements. Gonna order a set soon with 4.5" backspace. This is the most possible WITH mods done to the drums and backing plate. The most possible WITHOUT mods to the drums or backing plates is 3". Hope this helps.

Thanks for the measurments!!!!!!!!!!

Welllllll.... I would not say PLENTY on Mogml have done it, only cause 98% or more of them are stock rigs..... Not that it really matters. But, yeah hand full their have done it successfully. Havent heard of any unsucessfull ones.

I have not heard of how many worked to balance the rim in the process though.

Will urs be a rockcrawler only or a street/trail rig?

Coach,

My truck is slowly becoming a trail rig. Not much rock crawling around here so street will always be necessary. The Hummer wheels very well may be off-road use only. That would not be a problem. I trailer it if I am taking it more than about 40 miles.

Here are pics of the frame chop and crossmember swap. I have the new Optima Troll Fury ready to put in this month and a rear mount 50 gal fuel tank will be next.
