    Default H1 Hummer Rims

    I picked up some H1 rims back in December with the idea that I would recenter them and then run them on my Jeep. So I sold the tires and wheels that I currently had.
    So I had taken the rims apart on Monday but didn't have my camera. Then Wednesday my daughter came down with a real bad cold and has been home from school. So I couldn't get to the shop.
    Well I got a chance to stop by the shop today for a few minutes. I took some shots of the rims.


    Then one of my NEW TIRES, not the ones Ron said either. 38X12.50.16.5

    Then got home and the Big Brown truck came to visit me!!! I love the Big Brown truck!
    My new centers:


    And then the inserts that make it a double beadlock.

    Tires and inserts.

    My old body has decided that one per day is it.

    Getting that insert into the tire was FUN!!!

    Next was plasma cut the old center out of the rim.


    Then I tacked the new center inplace for a test fit on the Jeep.


    Tire on the rim.

    Mounted and ready for some air.

    Well I knew they were going to be heavy.

    My 5yr old does a pretty good job with that camera.

    Not bad got tons of room and I have about 4" of up travel left.

    Wished it had sucked the tire in a little more bit it will work.

    Not going to hit the frame.

    I checked for clearance front and rear, everything looks good. Will flex it out tomorrow or Thursday with a tire on each side.


    Looks damn good I think. Now to fully weld the centers in. I had just tacked it in two spots.

    Not really much to report on the rims other than I got all 4 done. I am taking them to a sand blaster Monday and have them cleaned up. After that bring them back to the shop and prep them for paint.

    And just a few to show ME doing the work, yes I really do know how to weld and use the plasma cutter. I ain't no Master Fab guru but I can find my way around the shop.




    So once I get them back from the sandbalaster and start to paint I'll post more pictures.
    Well then I ordered some bead rings made out of rebar. Once I recievied then I didn't like what I saw.

    So I went back and ordered some rock rings and they showed up today.

    So I had to take them out and just look at them at least. Tomorrow I'll fire up the welder and get that done. Then I'll run them back over to Yakima to get powdercoated. Still thinking about the color.
    But here is what they look like with the rings laid in place.

    So here is what the outer rings look like with the rock rings welded on.




    WOW!!! :headbang: :headbang: Is all I can say. The rims turned out better than I thought they would. Finishline in Yakima is going to get more of my buisness that is for sure.


    It will Wednesday before I can get them mounted up on the tires. Can't wait to see how that combo looks!!!

    Wildman!!! Damn it man, you can not have me sitting here at 2 am looking at your serious mad Jeep Fab Porn and when I get to the end they are not on the Jeep!!!!

    All kidding aside....that was a lot of work and creativity, I look forward seeing them on your rig which by-the-way appears to be a Beast!

    The bravest of all Spartans was Dienekes. It is said that on the eve of battle, he was told by a native of Trachis that “the Persian archers were so numerous that, when they fire their volleys, the mass of arrows will block out the sun.”

    Dienekes, however, quite undaunted by this prospect, remarked with a laugh, “Good. Then we’ll fight in the shade!”

    It will be next week sometime before I get them mounted onto the Jeep. But when I do I'll be posting pictures.

    Nice fab work. Keep sharing the jeep porn.

    Just be glad for the insert you don't have to do the run-flat p.o.s. That thing was a royal pain in the a$$.
