    Tires for an H3X 18 inch rims

    Hi,
    I have been searching for posts regarding tires for an H3X with 18 inch rims. I see a lot of posts about H3 adventure and what not, but nothing about the H3X with 18 inch rims.
    Does any one know what is the best size tire for the stock 18 inch rims of an H3X???
    i hear 33 inch tires, and 35 inch tires. However, i need specifics about the rims i have on my vehicle.
    I need to know exactly what bigger tires then 265/65R/18 will fit the stock H3X rims.
    im considering 33 inch tires but I am not sure how wide they should be.
    anyone??

    We put 285/65R/18 BFG TA KO all terrains on her H3 H3X rims. Got about 65k miles on them and getting ready to replace them with the same size BFG TA KO2 s.

    I also have the h3x, however I got rid of my 18's. Here is a tool that helped me, might help you.

    Once there select compare then your stock size, and size you want then it will give all the measurements. And a picture for reference

    Update

    Wow! I forgot to update on this. I ended up getting 33 inch tires with a width of 11.5 back in June 2017.
    Since then I’ve also put new upper arms, shocks, did some painting to the suspension so it doesn’t look rusty, and some other upgrades.
    Don’t know how to post pictures so...

    I have H3X wheels on my H3T. Maybe that makes it a H3TX. I have Mastercraft Coursers on it. 305/70R18. They are nearly the same size as 315/75R16 on factory Hummer wheels. Almost 35" tall, and 12" wide. My torsion bars are cranked, but not maxed out, they rub on the sway bar a little bit at full turns. I think this is the biggest tire that a tire shop like Belle Tire will put on a 7.5" wide rim. The next size up in a popular size is 325/65R18. I believe that tire it too wide for a 7.5" rim according to their specifications as to what they are allowed to install.
