Default Wheels

Hello everybody i am new from ireland and currently working of a film in hungary
i have bought 4 humvee s for this job and have a question some of you might be able to help with to which i would greatly appreciate
what i am planning to do is take the wheels off and replace them with massive agri wheels and tyres
500-45/22.5 these measure 1140mm x500mm the problem is what they weigh the standard wheel is 143lbs the wheel i will be using is about 300lbs
i am wondering will the wheel hubs and ball joint s survive it wont be doing much mileage or off road i just dont want disaster on the day
any help or advise would be great

Why would be the question? Do you see the military running giant tractor wheels/tires on their Humvees?

here is a military failure analysis report with a lot of detail that might pertain to your inquiry on a humvee. https://apps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a201894.pdf
it takes a long while to load.
