    53 michelin xzl tires

    Yes Sir, I went HEMTT wheels all the way around so I wouldn't worry about which ones would be for the fronts/rears.

    53 michelin xzl tires

    Got all 6 tires mounted on the truck Friday, now I need to figure out how to modify the spare tire carrier for the spare. I think the 16s without runflat inserts are lighter than the 14s with them. Though maybe I was just tired at the end of the day when I had to move all the 14s.

    I haven't had the privilege of flatting a military tire yet but I figured the 20 bolts holding the bead would hold it together, but I guess that is only the one side of the wheel...

    Going to tackle my wheels soon. I have 7 HEMTT wheels back from powdercoat and all the tires waiting to be built up. My question, do I need to use these Hutchinson beadlock inserts? Not sure how easy they are to get in but they look much easier (and are a lot lighter) than the hard rubber...

    Do you guys recommend running the lug nuts mentioned even for 939 series trucks? I have my HEMTT wheels back from powdercoat and hope to tackle this job sometime in the next month or so.

    Boost Pressure in M939A2?

    Mine hit 1200 stock empty, probe is in the exhaust manifold. I made sure to get temps before turning up fuel.

    M923A2 CTIS Problem

    Yeah, need to take a look at how they attach to the wheel and how hard it would be to make the hubs work with the different valves.

    M923A2 CTIS Problem

    The plumbing is different as well, or so I am told. It may take a few different fittings or hoses to get it to work.

    M923A2 CTIS Problem

    Glad this thread is back up near the top, I need to start trouble shooting mine again (never did get it working, I think it is electrical as I have never heard it even do a pressure check). The other question is it is worth trying to make the system work with HEMTT wheels and 16.00's?? Has...

    Slave Connector Battery Charger

    I have the solargizer, mounted the panel on the shelf in front of the passenger side windshield. Keeps everything topped up perfectly. I’m gone for 2-3 months at a time and the 5 ton always cranks right up for me when I get home.

    What have you done to your 5 ton this week?

    Those look like a pain in the butt. The beadlocks I got for 16s bolt together, I wonder if I got the wrong ones...
