Your research is correct.

I was just pointing out you can get them for a lot cheaper.

I had clearance issues on both the steering and the caliper on my 78 kp Ford 60. Just a thought: What would it cost to buy a set of basic steel wheels, add rock rigs from Tab, weld a piece of .500 rod around the inner bead to strenghten it and load them up with a set of Inner Air Locks? I believe you would have less in those and have a lighter wheel assm. than the H1's. I sure have a lot of money in mine after I recentered them and put rings on them and then only have the option of 16.5's. Something to think about.

Dunno, But the guy I'm buying the wheels and tires from on Pirate4X4 is selling the H1s with a rebar ring welded around the rock ring. The whole wheel only costs $200 and that's with recenter.
