Anyone running Michelin XL 14.5 R20's?

I can get a real good deal on them, thinking about buying them. They measure out to about a 43x14.5x20. Anyone run them or know anyone that runs them?I know theyre a little on the heavy side buy I heard they wear really slow and ride really well. Any help would be much appreciated, and if you have pics of this setup please post them!

As fast as you want as long as you get them balanced. I usually ran around 75 to 80 on the interstate

they are commercial grade tires, and I know where to get them at a good price... as for balancing they are tough... their rubber compound tends to dry rot... its just on the surface and not a saftey hazard, but it looks bad at times... but I know a few guys running them... Not Stock is running a set on his truck right now.... I opted for the Goodyear MV/T... its a little bigger tire, but 10x's the tire that the michelin is... looks better too... 395/85R20 is the size

The goodyears look badass, thanks for the info dunesrunner08. I wish they came in a 41-44 though, I think a 46 is pushing it for my lift. What size lift do you have and do you have pics?
