Thanks! :)

Yup, 17"

We were trying to see if the tires would fit in the tracks left by this type of tracked vehicle as I had heard that "share a trail" logic was part of the AMG design. I still don't know if it really was designed that way but I could definitely fit in the same track as it. :) I thought that was kinda cool.

dont think thats true, only because the H1 doesnt need to follow anything, It can go it alone.

However, the built to follow tanks are all over the place as FACT.

read on:

The Hummer become well known to most people during the Gulf War where it proved to be a highly reliable and dependable machine.

With a 16" ground clearance when fully loaded, and full time four wheel drive powered by a 170 hp diesel engine (and now some 190 hp Turbos too) the Hummer can maneuver through almost anything.

It was designed to follow in the tracks ... the field.

Now a days, that being in the year 2005 and beyond, you can see Hummers on almost any MTV cribs show or even driving down the street in your neighborhood.

They are large and charge and very eye catching and I have to admit that when I was looking for a new vehicle, I did look at Hummers.

Hey if the truth be told, I really didn't care what color it was, I just wanted one.

I drooled over'em for about four months and although I didn't end up getting one (filling the tank would have broke me) I still drool over'em and hey ya neva know, one of these days..... I just might have one of these babies sittin' in ma driveway.

The Humvee or H1 Hummer is a large vehicle – too large for normal circumstances. As it was originally designed to follow in tank tracks, it’s extremely wide, won’t fit into many car park buildings, is too wide for supermarket carparks and too wide for the narrow tracks in New Zealand
