    Anyone know where i can get a set of these from? I really like the fact they have good wear on the streets since my rig will see alot of road usage. Any information on a dealer or someone who has access to these will be helpfull. Thanks

    If you want to get them on the cheap, look at getting them from Government Liquidation. A lot of times, you'll find pallets of brand new tires going for next to nothing.

    Thanks for the input. I've been checking govliq and only seem to find the ones for the humvees 16.5 rims or the 20" rims. I have also read several bad reviews of 6x6 on these boards and they also seem to only have the 20s.

    sorry for the hijack but what about the 325/85/16 xmls? I like the 11r16 xls but I want some that are a little wider. does anybody know where to find the xmls?

    11x16=XML or XZL 39" x 11-12"

    325-XML 39" x 13-14"

    All all-around excellent tires. Good on street, no balancing required. There's a reason they cost $500 ea new from a dealer.

    Govliq has some on and off but never seen XMLs on there. very difficult to dismount wihtout a press, etc. I have 4 XMLs I got from skidpan. My bro used to buy them off govliq, dismount, and sell. I'll be going to check out a rumor abou a local guy that has 100s next tuesday. bug me.
