Has anyone put HMMWV wheels on a Dually?

Rear should work as well since the hub with is wider as well on a dually. Unless he's talking about having it "dualed". In which it could be done, but you're going to have to build some hefty spacers/adapters. And tire inflation will be interesting.

That looks pretty awesome actually.

Roveroverme, yeah that's certainly lifted. I'd say 6" at least. I did think about the rears a little more. If you were to drill a 1/2 or so hole in the rims right there near the bulge before the hub flange, you could use some of those remote air hoses for motorhomes and such. Then for the spacers you could probably get away with a set of dually front spacers on the rear. I'd see about having a thin plate made with lugnut bevels to keep the inner wheel in place. Then bolt them down with a socket and wrench. Then put the outers on as you route the hoses through. Changing tires would be a lot of NOT FUN. But it certainly would look cool.

OK, did some googling and found that truck. He's only running the HMMWV rims up front.

There is a member here that put 6 of them on his Dodge. He had a company he deals with make a spacer/adapter that is bolted onto the face of the inner wheel. The outer wheel (modified) bolts on facing the inner wheel. The adapters were hubcentric in design and he reported that it drove pretty nice. It can be done but I hate to see the cost of those adapters.

The following wrecker runs dualled 37s on the back and HMMWV rims on the front. Here's a short vid. With the wider truck axle you have you wouldn't need the inner spacer.

The more I think about it , the less i feel like putting on HMMWV wheels , I think I'll go with M/T tires the way I had them on my old M1028A3. It's just less trouble- less cool than the HMMWV wheels, but less trouble.

I'd probably go with a smaller size on the Dually wheels. just to keep some added distance between the two tires without having to have a spacer.

The 325's can't be used on the HMMWV rims. 16" vs 16.5".
