I found a set of 4 stock H2 chrome wheels and tires locally, with less than 100 miles on them. They are asking $995 for the set, but if I could buy them for $800, would that be a good price? Also, I've been looking at other threads and there are differing opinions on the subject of whether these will fit a 2006 2500HD 4x4 without a lift. If I just crank the factory keys, I'll still hit the front painted bumper valance, correct? I don't see that trimming that would look very good. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm looking to do something this week. Thank you all!

My H2's fit with factory keys and trimming the valance. If your good you can make the cut look like it came from the factory that way.

Thanks for your help

I think getting the chrome wheels and tires for $800 with less than 100 miles is a good deal. You can't buy 4 new tires and new chrome wheels for that. I don't think you can trim the '06 lower valance on the bumper without it looking bad. The older GMC and all the Chevys have an unpainted plastic piece that can be trimmed to look like factory. I am going to check into a 6" lift. I was going that direction later anyway. It may be easier to do all at once. I don't want to mount the tires and wheels and tear up my new truck. Thanks for your help. I'll make a garage up soon.

Had H2 wheels and tires for a while now. They fit after cranked torsion bars and rub only when making a sharp turn or u turn. I paid $500 for them in Dallas. $800 is a good deal because the tires alone would cost that much new.

I paid $660 for brand new H2 non-chrome wheels and tires, goodyear wrangler extreme ATs. Put on the Cognito leveling kit, trimmed the air dam on the bumper and the rear side of the plastic wheel well flap on the driver side only. And I put 1 inch blocks in the back to level it out again, or the front would have been higher. I have a 2004.

Just bought 4 brand new H2 Chrome wt/ 315 70R 17 BfGoodrich AT's today. $850.00 shipped from New York to my door in Louisiana.

Hope they fit with a little trimming of the valance...I already have the T-Bars cranked. 285 Goodyear AT Silent Armor on stock rims only rub when turning hard in reverse.

I strongly disagree I think it can be trimmed quite nicely. No one knows I trimmed both sides till I tell them.

If my new rims conyinue to grow on me I will be selling my chrome H2's with Hummer center caps and lugs, and GMC caps modded to fit and lugs. I dont know right now, still deciding whether my new wheels are too much bling or not.
