No, not bad. They are bigger but the beads are correct and as far as I know, OEM 16.00 is on a 10" wide rim. Personally I like a wider rim because of sidewall stress, but I have yet to see a wider rim that fits the five ton. That's partially why I'm making wider rims, but in my case for the Sand Trail tires that are as wide as the 16.00 but only 49".Hmn, I put 53" XZL's on my 5T combact rims from my M932A2. Bad idea?
Are they aluminum MRAP's with 11.25" bolt circle? If so, see if they take a curved chamfer lug-nut like this;Any concerns with using MRAP alloys with 53s on my 818? Will I get full steering?

I know there are others here that can tell you about steering, I haven't went beyond 11.00 on an 809 series. I sold my 817 and hope to pick up another, then use these sand trails on the rear and 14.00 on the front. Going to 53" would require some clearance calculations affecting the wheel offset. Must work, others are doing it.
On my rims, I moved the center -line 1" outward with my rim mod. What would using your rims do to the center-line of the tire?
Maybe , yes.I know others have used HEMTT wheels and 53s on their 809s and IIRC, the HEMTT wheels move the tire further in than the MRAP wheels do. Am I wrong in my recollection?
Hello juanprado,Need some advice from those who have super singled their 5 ton.
I have a m923.
I plan on using goodyear mtv 395/85/20
I have just picked up 3 brand new tires mounted on brand new fmtv wheels. I also have a set of 8 of the newer 5 ton combat wheels.
I was going to break down the fmtv wheels and mount them on my combat wheels but started thinking why don't I just mount the fronts with the new fmtv wheel combos and mount 4 combat wheels on the back. Thinking of the saving my back some wear and tear, plus only having to mount 4 wheels instead of 7. The 3rd fmtv combo will become my spare. Also then thought I could sell a set of 4 brand new combat wheels and regain some $.
Thanks to gringeltaube for posting the diagrams.
From what I can tell, the measurements look almost identical. Will this work or I missing something?
Only negative I can see if I rotate the tires, I will have a mis matched set on the back but when mounted on the rear; I think they will look identical with dish in side by side?
Other question, The rims have brand new ctis valves and plumbing. Will fmtv standard valve stems have threads internally so I can add a shrader valve when I remove the ctis components?
I appreciate any help or insight you can share?
