Blast Models of France has released several detail sets targeted for the recent Tamiya Hummer kit. This set in particular is a provides the updated wheels and the new tires with an off-road tread.
Each of these castings is very nicely done with detail presented everywhere that will be visible.
This set is really one of four detail sets for the Hummer to bring it up to contemporary OIF configuration, 1) the armored door set, 2) the new tires and wheels, 3) the detailed turret ring, and 4) the equipment external stowage set.
From what I could tell, the best (and perhaps only) way to obtain Blast Models' products was directly from them. A visit to their website at www.blast-models.com revealed that Blast Models is an interesting online hobby shop that sells a variety of products over and above their own product line. The site is multilingual and very easy to navigate. I ordered this set and my order arrived via airmail a week or so later.
If you've been looking for a way to bring your Tamiya kit up to OIF/OEF standards, here is what you're looking for. This set is recommended!
