I want a set of 38-44 xml's... xzl's.. anything really. Something I can throw on the ford instead of the boggers for going camping and stuff. I've tried a couple places but had no luck so far. Ebay has a few but having them shipped up here is expensive....
Anyone know where to find some??

I think Midway tire can get them too. Either way your going to pay through the nose for them.

This gent in the states sells them too. See if anyone else is interested to share the shipping costs.

i used to have the michelin xl's (never even put them on my truck) but i would never even concider using them on my truck. WAY to heavy and you cant air them down and are made with rubber thats ment for ultra durability not traction. the rubber is hard as rock. the ones i had were 425 lbs each. thats the weight of a 54" bogger times 2 plus another 50 lbs. there made for 2.5-5 ton trucks.

I want them just for camping and stuff. I drive quite a ways to go camping and my boggers would be gone in no time if I used them.
I'd like something that will last for that and not wear down

The michelin military spec tires will be a stiffer tire because of the load range, and yes they are a harder rubber compound for durability and prevent chunking.

Someone else might be solving the problem for me.... made me an offer on the truck I might take..... Have to think about it a bit.
If I sell it I'll end up switching back to a toy.
