    Ive decided my next tires will be 325/85R16 Michelin XMLs, but I cant seem to find anywhere in the states to buy them. We sell michelins where I work, but nothing that big. I cant even try to special order them. Where should I go. Any help would be appreciated.

    I see in your profile that you have the 11.00R16s. Are those the XZLs. How much were they and where did you get them. Do they wear as good as I think they will meaning well over 50,000 miles. I assume since they put these on much heavier trucks and they get a lot of mileage out of them that on our relatively light trucks they should wear real well. How well do they grab onto rocks and such. How are they in the mud. Thanks for your replies.

    There aer some guys on the board from Canada and Europe. Maybe if you contacted them you could work a deal or get an idea of price.
