Anyone with Michelin XZL 275/80R20s?

Thinking of buying a set of these military tires. They are 36inchs tall about 11inch wide and fit 20inch wheels. I have factory BAP 20 inch wheels on my 3rd gen.

Anyone seen this before? How do these tires do on the road? YES I KNOW THEY ARE MILITARY TIRES PLEASE DON'T LECTURE ME ABOUT THAT

They are radial tires, Load rang D and have a load rating of 3970lbs each at 60psi

Continental Tire makes a few but the smallest IIRC is 37" by about 11".

Thread revival.

Where did you find these XZLs? I would love to find some for my 2500 on order.

The XZL is, quite simply, the most durable light truck off-road tire that money can buy. I run them on my Land Rover Defender 110. I've taken them all over the volcanic deserts of Southern Idaho and many other places. I've never had a single flat, ever. If you run over a nail, it usually bends the nail and sends it sideways through the lug instead of penetrating.

They're not amazing on the road--a little loud, a little harsh--but off-road, there is none better.

I would look at speed ratings for these two mentioned tires.
