Wooden handle very well.No sidewall deflection or flex to speak of. However, when tires like these fail, they fail spectacularly.

But the beauty of the horse drawn carriages with wheels like these were that they did not depend on traction from those wheels to propel the vehicle.

They also weighed a whole lot less, and traveled at MUCH slower speeds.

I certainly hope no one drives that thing on public roads. Its an accident waiting to happen!

Actually the wheels themselves are artistic. It's the HUMMER brand and concept that's a huge waste ! :cheesy:

Which is why GM is "reviewing" the brand ... which means bye bye consumer Hummer's. A pity too, I just loved seeing the underside of those cars on the highway, or watching some dumb a**hole try to park one in a tiny parking lot ...

LOL. I think in this case the word "compact" is acting as more of a verb, as in: "The Hummer H2 will compact whatever was parked there originally" :o:cheesy:

Admittedly that space is really rather large, there is plenty of room for the Hummer... In Montreal you would never have this, instead you would park a Toyota Echo hatchback and you would have to get out from the hatchback not the doors :lol:

those lines under the tires, those aren't travel lanes of a "street" right? :lol:

Haha. That is hilarious.
For those who didn't RTFA, it's not meant to be driven. It's an art project.

The car behind does as well ... maybe it is in Europe :o the plates look UK :roll:

And the tyres come in different colours: http://di1.shopping.com/images/pi/d4/b2/bf/36899140-177x150-0-0.jpg (http://www.largerubberbands.net/shop/details.html?item=36899140#)

We're not sure what's so artistic about a HUMMER H3 with wooden wagon-style wheels, but apparently someone with a higher aptitude than ourselves has created just such an exhibit. It's parked outside the Royal Academy of Arts in London and was created by an artist named Matthew Harrison. According to the press release, he "has combined the legendary off-road vehicle with 'Wild West' wooden wheels to create a sculpture that is a mixture of art, engineering and motoring. For Harrison, "the crux of the 'Hummer' is formed by both its 'being' and its afterlife." We couldn't have sarcastically come up with a better line than that, so we'll just leave it as is. If you'd like to see this rolling sculpture in person, you can do so starting October 17 and it will be parked until the 20th.

The theme of this year's Burning Man festival out in the desert of Nevada was "The American Dream." There are few things in this world that embody the American spirit more than the automobile

Pretty impressive ground clearance ........ looks like a good 60" or so.

I believe this is the refueller that's optional with the bad boy:
