Hummers don’t have four lugnuts, and there aren’t gas stations, thats not how they are built.
Mesa knows more, he was with grunts, I was just attached for training.
I FAILED my humvee course (true) because I ran into the base SgtMajor’s van, while I was taking my humbee class. Thats true, i only broke his tail light (no shit, and that is no shit) and it was my ground guides fault, not mine, Once again, no shit.
Anyways, before I got into the humvee, I knew it had a lousy turning radius compared to a street car, and that it could pretty much drive over anything, so I had no problem intimidating the lead car with my humvee when I was driving it behind a civvy car, I was a bit of a jerky back then.
I also know that humvee’s had runflat tires, this had NOTHING to do with being a humvee driver, but rather that I was routinely volunteered for shit jobs (remember I was courtmartialed based on information that didn’t include me, I should have been battallion NJP’d but not summary courtmartialed, I don’t bitch about the punishment, just the EAGERNESS) anyways. . . . . .
Every change a humvee tire?
I think there are 12 bolts holding it in place as the first argument, and then, if you have a complete tire in the back, you can’t carry more than 4 people in the back of a humvee, YES the tires are damn near that big.
If you ACTUALLY change a humvee tire, you have to protect either the tire, or the run flat “donut” we didn’t call it a donut, I forget what we called it at the time.
But Before I was even allowed to drive one, and get into a car accident with The Base SgtMaj’s van, I had to do basic matainence. I was a maintenance guy, so I got maintence, I was kinda surprised by the requirement of having two fat guys jump on the “doughnut” until it fit the rim, and then at least one fat guy, or two normal guys, jumping on the tire.
You don’t jump on the tire to make it fit, you jump on the tire, so that the bolts of the “lugs” in normal cars can even TOUCH the threads of the hummer.
Humvee’s are VERY stout and powerful vehicles.
I’m just saying, and my experience consisted of a couple of field tests (where I did nothing) and “training” (basicaly liscence classes) where I had to do that crap.
No, you ain’t gonna change a tire in the middle of a streem, hehe, hows that for an analogy, for anyone who gets it.
