Michelin XLZ 395/85R20; interested?

they are 46.4x15.5x20's.....

anyone want to run such a tire?

I can land five of them, brand new, for a price that is hard to believe... but I thought I'd ask before I went and got them if anyone is interested.. many sets available...

hell, I may get a set- but only after I figure out how big a lift I need to support them..

Not interested in the tires but am interested in whether you got your fuel pressure issue fixed.

I did... it was the FRP sensor.. a fairly easy job, and haven't had a problem since..

I really appreciate your help with that one.. I was way far from home and only had a (somewhat) smart phone to dig for solutions with..

I was looking into the XL series tires many years ago since they were relatively cheap for the size. Unless something has changed or if I am mistaken the only downside is that you aren't supposed to run them faster than 55 MPH.

Yup... These are from military drmo, on the base I work.. they are for mcats, or seven ton's... You're likely right about the speed rating, but I gotta say: if there is a street legal p/u with enough balls to push those heavy rascals that fast, I would be impressed.. they likely weigh 300# each, and rotational weight of all four would be in the neighborhood of 4800#.. enough power to turn them would be enough power to snap axles too.. I bet the axles would give first, or, it would take a good driver to keep that from happening..

The military paid $21k for all five of them, and they are unused selling for about $150... Typical, huh?

Yup... $150 for five is criminal... Gotta love waste fraud and abuse.. they likely have fifty SETS of five on pallets they are selling..

Peterson off road magazine put a set on the ultimate superduty they built for the ultimate adventure. I can not recall if they ran them on the road or not but they did have upgraded axles and they had to run a ram assist because they kept on breaking steering boxes if I recall correctly.
