There are absolutely bike racks that will work for bikes that have a thick frame like your Hummers; the best option is going to be one that mounts your bikes by the wheels. I highly recommend checking out the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 because it is a wheel-mount rack that offers a unique combination of function and style. The Sherpa 2.0 comes in your choice of colors: Black # SH22B, Pearl # SH22P, or Gray # SH22G.

This is a wheel-mount rack which installs in your vehicle's 2 inch trailer hitch and uses ratcheting hooks to grasp your bikes by the front wheels, eliminating any frame contact with your bikes; it also has rear-wheel cradles with ratcheting straps to secure your bike's rear wheels.

The Sherpa 2.0 can be tilted down - even with the bikes loaded - with the press of a handy foot lever, and can also fold up for when the bikes are not being carried. It does not require any tools to install into your hitch as you'll only need to turn a knob to tighten the rack in the hitch; this also works as an anti-rattle device so you can get a quiet ride.

Additionally, the Sherpa 2.0 comes with a hitch lock to secure the rack to your vehicle and a cable lock to secure your bikes to the rack, helping protect your investments.

This is a lightweight, 32 lb rack which has a weight capacity of 40 lbs per bike and fits bikes with tire widths up to 3", wheelbases up to 47" and wheels that are 20" to 29". I have added links to video reviews of this rack for you to take a look at.
