    Good luck. I searched for over a year before I found a set of four. They haven't been sold in the U.S. market for nearly a decade now, and therefore are scarce. When I was looking, I found eight XL's in a warehouse in Dallas, but they wanted $380 a tire.

    on that note, I might be co-erced into selling my four

    Are they 9.00-16 XZLs (36s)? If so how much tread? Can you get pics and how much you want for the 4?

    Canada seems to have plenty but getting them shipped to Texas isn't cheap.

    I forgot to give you a lead:
    http://www.garbee.net/~cabell/photos5.htm
    Check through there, might be something new.
    I'll get pics, but it might be next week.

    edit;
    Where in Texas are you?
    Where in Canada? If in Alberta, maybe we can do something.

    For 11.00R16 Michelin XL's I bought mine off of eBay, via an auction, from etiresmarket1 for $330.00 for all 4 with 85+% tread.

    I drove down to San Diego to pick them up and saw their warehouse. Mucho, Mucho tires :D !! They have tons of them. I even picked mine out using a metric ruler to check the treadwear! I looked at approx. 15 tires to get my '85% tread left' tires. Most had easily 65+% tread on them.

    Good luck!

    Been to that link via google and called those places, they no longer have any.

    I'm in NE Texas (Longview).

    It's Dollar Tire in Edmonton, AB. Do you have a connection up there?

    Appreciate the help. If I can get your 4 then I could just get 2 from them. I could just use a more normal tire for a spare.

    Seen those auctions, he doesn't have the smaler stuff. I'm not looking for 11.00 series only the 9.00.

    Too cool!! Working a deal to get my 53"s to Demon44, may meet him or a bud in Denver, what kinda deal are they offering? We may be able to make something work.
    Oh, and I have a friend who drives (empty) to Longview once a month.
    Hell, I can keep mine and get some extras, and you can get some!

    They are priced anywhere from 150 to 350 depending on tread. Since you may have a way of getting them to Texas realitvity cheap I will call and see what they have in the 75-80% range and how much on Tuesday.

    Sounds good to me.

    I think I'm going up on or about the 12th. F.Y.I. New they are 20/32nds tread depth. My four average 17-18 32nds, and that is the minimum I would be interested in.
