    the XMLs are to wide for the stock steel wheels, youd need a 16x8 or so.

    good to know...
    I have a 700r4 and 4.11s do you think i'll need to regear to run these?
    What do you think of these tires? Longevity? Traction? Sidewall flex? Tell me everything.

    Michelin says to use a 9 inch rim.

    Lots o traction, but they are pretty stiff, under a 6000 lb truck they wouldnt be bad,Im not sure ow they will wear as i havent had my Xls very long and they only see dirt and mud, but they are a fairly hard compound so life should be pretty good. You will want at least 4.56's, i have 5.13s and its just perfect with my tires, lots of crawlability .
