That size wont fit on a 2wd i dont think check that out before you buy them. And they are nice tires for looks and slight offroading. Ive got a set, if your planning on mudding often, which you wont, you can get a more aggressive tread for less money. But for the money and weekend use, they wear great, and dont make any noise.

ok as long as they fit. You will have to lift the front end. They are nice street tires and the tread looks good. They wont do much in much but everything else is pretty good. My truck also does well on wet roads too. Thats a plus for sure. For a street truck they look good. Ive had two sets and ill go with a MTZ when i lift my truck at the end of the summer.

dont know if anybody knows this but the stock tires on a h2 are bfg 35s ats just call the dealer ship and ask if they have any take offs its way cheaper than buying them brand new which they usually are from the dealer because everybody is slapping 22s on them so the dealer usually keeps the tires and rims can also make some of you money back by selling the rims on ebay

hummers come with a 315 on them, a 285 is like a skinny 33 and a 265 is like 31.5, theres absolutely no way possibly to fit a 315 on a stock 2wd, its gonna take like 7'' to fit those

Ive had a few sets of BFGs now....

first set was 285/75/16 on my truck. terrible in any kind of mud, when hitting puddles on the street the tires pull hard and they wore very well and were pretty quiet.

second set was 245/75/16 on my 4 runner. Terrible in mud, pull in puddles, these have balancing issues and ride rough between 65-75. They are E rated so I expect them to last FOREVER on my 4 runner. These are pretty loud compared to the 285s but that is prob due to the vehilces projecting sound differently. either way i like the way they look and how they perform in dirt (not mud), the mileage on them is good and ill prob run em again.

I have them on my truck. They are HORRIBLE in the rain and street puddles. Good tire for dry conditions. I will probably move to another tread pattern because I need tires that do better in wet conditions.

I disagree. I really like mine in those conditions and find they work really well in the snow/ice as well. Haven't really had them offroad for more than a few miles.

I don't have any issues in the rain with mine. Snow, Ice, Rain, Dry weather...all conditions they work great in. Now, I have hit some pretty good size puddles and had some pulling, but honestly, what 33" tire that is out is gonna prevent that from happening? They do pretty much suck in the mud, but for an all around tire, there awesome. I just turned over 40k on mine and I still have 1/2 the tread left on them. Rotate them every 6k or so and you'll be fine.
