Thread: Goodyear MT tires - Mil Spec Hummer tires

  1. #1

    Default Goodyear MT tires - Mil Spec Hummer tires

    Been looking at possibly doing the Hummer wheel thing.

    Tires appear to be plentiful on ebay. On a whim I just won an auction for 4 for $100 (plus shipping).

    Now I need to decide to do the Hummer Rim conversion mentioned elsewhere or just have Marsh make a new set that will fit.

    Anyone have any feedback on the tires or stories of those who have gone ahead and used them?

    Hell, for the price...I might even put them on my TJ!

    You get the 36 bias plys or the 37 radials?

    I have had both on my M101 trailer. The 36" tires pull better.
    Remember if you didn't build it you can't call it yours.

    6.2 powered M715, 5 M1009's, M416, 2 M101's, 2 M105's, 3 M35's, M1007 6.5 turbo Suburban project called Cowdog.

    The auction was a set of 4 of the 37" radials with 65% tread left. I don't mind the used aspect so much since I just need a road worthy set. I've asked if it's possible to add a 5th to the package since the seller has multiple listings for the tires.

    I've also located another seller who has the rims listed at $25 a peice. Depending on the answer I get on pirate 4x4 on the inserts, this looks like the way to go.

    Those big radials look nice, handle well, are very quiet on the road, and have absolutely no off-road traction. Snow, sand, mud, dry dirt, it makes no difference. Really. I just took them off a truck due to it being really helpless off-road.

    I know some guys who run the bias 36s and like them a lot better, especially when the center ribs are notched with a grooving iron.

    Then it sounds like a good fit for me right now. Cheap and road worthy.

    A local guy has about 200 of those wheel tire combos. He sells a set of four for 200 bucks. Most all of them are the 36 inch bias and they are still mounted. If anyone is interested, I could get his number. I didn't want the hassle of recentering the wheels and, honestly, the tires don't look like they'll last all that long to me.

    Just cut a deal on some recentered rims.

    Compared to the cost of buying 14-17.5 tires for the rims currently on the truck, I'm still coming out ahead.

    Here are what my new ones will look like:


    This set will cost me about double what the Marsh rims would have, but I like the fact that they are double beadlocked and surplus.

    Looks like the 37" radials run anywhere from 25-100 a peice on ebay depending on wear. H1 rims can be had at $25 a pop.
