Does anybody know anything about the mil spec tires used on the HMMWV? A quick search didn't find anything helpful so I'm going to tap into the knowledge base here!

37x12.50 in several different varieties.

Old Bias Ply GoodYears.

In radials BFG Baja TA the aggressive and less aggressive tread pattern, GoodYear MT (directional), GoodYear MTR (non directional) were the ones I've seen.

BFGoodrich makes a Baja off road tire specifically for the hummer.

They aren't that great off road from what I have seen. They are just too heavy (duty, weight) for something light like a Jeep. There is just no traction with them. And on the road, the directional ones and the MT/R ones are pretty awful for traction.

They kind of work on a 1 ton truck or a Suburban or something, but still not great.

True with all the armor they've added...but it met the US Army's specs when first built, and back then it was a superb off road vehicle.

I use the overseas owner's manual to choose my oil.

If I recall, they are still on a 16.5" Rim as well... not too common these days. All of the new ones that I last worked with had the 37 x 12.5 Good Year M/T on them. Great looking tire for sure!


Just say NO to thin oils and M1!

I was just looking for info and was pretty curious about construction. I thought the bfg Baja and the GY mtr were used but couldn’t remember. Thanks!
