Default Hummer H1 rims with adapters

So i got a sweet deal on some Hummer H1 rims/tires(11.00 h 16 XL) and decided to have a machinist make some adapter plates to mount on the stock axles. I should of asked here 1st but it was a spur of the moment kind of thing.

My question is: will i have any trouble with the extra weight of the wheels on the stock axles?

question 2: i plan on taking "Hector" out on some trails but nothing tooo extreme and wondered if there are any weak points that will come up with the heavier rim/tire combo?

edit: whoops pics are massive lol, I'm just gonna link them

Hi Bacardi,

I'm pretty sure those are not H1 rims but rather LAV rims. Probably a set of takeoff tires/rims when they switched to the 20" size.

I was thinking about going the same route but haven't found a source of those rims yet.

Some of the M37 guys have made adapters to bolt those wheels to their trucks. Check out this link http://www.texaspowerwagon.com/LAV-1.htm

I talked to a guy on Steel Solders who was thinking about making a set for the M715 but apparently there was not enough interest to make it happen. I think it is doable but you'll have to have a machinist buddy help you out.

Good luck!

Talk to Snake River 4x4, they make adaptor plates for bolting gamma goat rims on the 715.

I'm interested in seeing the adapters you're using? did you make the 6 x 7.25 into a standard 8-lug pattern? I thought the 8 lug pattern was smaller and I did'nt think that would work??

If they were Hummer rims, it would not work. They are off of one of the bigger trucks.

Do you mean these particular adapters won't work or that an adapter that would be custom made for the H1 wheel onto the M715 hub won't work?

Adapters for the H1 8-bolt style won't work as the H1 bolt circle diameter is too small.

The larger adapters shown should work fine.
