Some HMMWV tire info.

The original tires on them when they were introduced in the early '80s were Wrangler M/T bias-ply tires. The older bias-ply tires were 36" x 12.50" 16.5 tires on an 8-bolt rim.

The newer radials are 37" x 12.50" 16.5 R tires on 12-bolt rims. The radial tires came out in the early '90s.

There is also a newer tire that is used on M1151 and other heavy HMMWVs that came out in the mid-2000s. They are Goodyear Wrangler MT/R, also 37" x 12.50" 16.5 R. They have a new tread patter, reinforced sidewall design, and 24-bolt rim.


You can’t, or at least are not supposed to, put a new style tire on an old-style rim or vice versa.

The older bias-ply 36" tires were still available as of about '07 when I was at the NTC. We had a roving maintenance team that came to you like a pit crew and changed flat tires. There were a lot of tires punctured or cut by the rough terrain there. When you called them on the radio to come fix your tire, you had to tell them which size you had to make sure they had the right one on their truck.

Very nice. I wish someone would make the Contact Team shelter on the EOD HMMWV above. It is used by many different units, not just EOD.

The contact truck and this two about i would love to have a add on kit for that.

I contacted ICM and offered assistance. Lets see how it turns out.
