The H3 aint Bling! If you guys call that Bling, i wonder what you'd say when you see some Hummer's in the gulf. The alloys on this look like some Chinese/Taiwan make. I would've preferred the stock ones to these.

Surely, a Hummer is Bling right from the start?

A hummer was meant to be a no nonsense go anywhere brute.Last thing its designers wanted it to be was "Bling".

OT: Civilian Hummers aren't no-nonsense go anywhere brutes, they are just nonsense. All that they have is looks.
I like the wheels on this one though.

Hummers look best with their stock wheels!
The best one for this vehicle is stock wheels. This wheels looks like some cheap stuff. Didnt like it at all

The 'civilian' Hummer H2 is nothing but a run-on-the-mill Chevy Tahoe underneath the skin!
