I use thick bearing grease and lube the oring, plus it keeps the oring in place.

I've only heard/read of the rubber ones being a PITA to install, so I'm not sure.

On PBB there's a nice write up on cutting the pvc style into halve's that seem to assemble a lot easier.
Stazworks makes a great set of inner beadlocks. They go into the tire very easy and a decent price as well.

I think a ratchet strap to compress them would help

I have some ratchet straps for sale.
Missing some pieces, you can have new ones sent over from T-wahn.
Township says I can't keep them.
I paid $40.00 each for them new.
Selling them for $39.00.

the magnesium runflats are not being used in the current run of Humvees.... they switched over to rubber runflats a while ago, back when they switched the Hmvees from the bias-rated 8-bolt wheels to the radial-rated 12 bolt wheels.... the magnesium ones are actually much easier to deal with then th rubber, easy to install, remove, and much lighter.

The rubber ones suck ass to install into a tire. You have to ratchet the thing into a big oval, basically so that the insides touch each other, then you have to man handle it into the tire, ussually with aid of 1 or more crow-bars.... its a PIA, but once its done ussually its a while before you get to do it again.

If you are looking to get the rubber runflats, you can get them through a hummerdealer for way to much money, or you can find them on e-bay, humvee.net's classified's sometimes, austin aviation's ebay store or just on e-bay ingeneral.... they are not cheap, ussually can be found for 200+ each... from a dealer I think they are like 700 each....

I just got a pretty dang good deal on 12 bolt H1's, rubber runflats and tires from www.americanhumvee.com Larry there was excellent to deal with.

12 bolt H1 rims, 37" tires and Rubber runflats weigh in at 160 lbs per tire/wheel combo though.

This has gotten way off topic :tonka:
