We might have an idea of what type of tires the Hummer will have thanks to Motor Trend.

According to them the Hummer will be sporting BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM3 tires. They didn't specify the size but those tires are sized from 28 to 39 inches.

However the power is metered out, it appears to be going to the ground via BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM3 tires, which are manufactured in sizes ranging from 28 to 39 inches. It's not clear whether this tire will be offered from the factory, at the dealer, or if it was just used for this mock-up. It's also not clear what size tire will be offered from the factory, though similar factory built off-road trucks such as the Ford F-250 Tremor have 35-inch tires standard.

Oakwood, I can't remember the exact source I read this at, or else I would provide it for you, but they said a GMC rep told them that the stock tires will be 35's, with the biggest tire offering (likely on the tri-motor Hummers, and maybe on the dual-motor versions) being 37's.

For reference, the monstrous Ford Raptor uses 34 inch tires.

Hi Oakwood I can't agree with you on the tires. They are pure off road tires not for highway. My guess is they will look for something which is great on highways and has some off road capabilities

Potentially on the lowest trim level, 2007, but the actual Hummer models shown to the price were wearing off-road dedicated tires. The original Hummers from the 2000's were the same. Expect all tires to be big, off-road variants.

I read the same thing - 35's standard with available 37's.

Here's an update on the tires...supposedly, the recent leaked images show Nitto Terra Grappler G2 tires on the BT1 chassis. These tires are less aggressive than the BF Goodrich Mud Terrains we saw on earlier physical models of the BT1 chassis shown in March:


Assuming both tires would be offered, I'd imagine the Nittos would be the base tire, and the BF Goodrich tires would be the hard-core, off-road variants, as they're more aggressive than the Nittos (Mud Terrains are arguably the best overall off-road tires out there). But having the Nittos as the base tire would be welcome - they may not be as aggressive as the Mud Terrains, but they're no slouch!

Plus not having mud tires would be much better for road noise and range. Rivians are using a low rolling resistance A/T tire for this reason

That's the right balance. Leave the BF Goodrich's for people that are actually going to take it off-roading.
