Chris,

Bozman has 5 wheels (ANR 4636) with rubber on them for sale here:

http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...light=michelin

One of them appears to be an XZL already. I just shipped 5 steelies (no rubber) via Greyhound from Norwich, CT to Annapolis, MD for $110 bucks to give you an idea on shipping costs.

If somebody's getting quotes, give me a number on 8.25s.
I have a fresh set of 6 Michelin XZL 7.50s but if could score 8.25s I'd move the smaller tires over to the disco.

I have had the 7.50 and the 9.00, but if the 8.25s are available for reasonable $$, I'll take 10 please.

I like the look of the 7.50s on your truck and didn't think they look too small. Are you having second thoughts?

As far as the 8.25s go, I spoke with a local fleet dealer who called their rep at Michelin who did some digging. Michelin has stopped manufacturing the 8.25s completely and there's no telling if they will ever make them again. There are no 8.25s available in any Michelin warehouse anywhere. Some dealer somewhere may conceivably have a set collecting dust but Michelin isn't aware of any.

The preverbial want what we can't have I suppose, but that is a great fit if any are found.

You might try the 225/100/16 I think it is about the same size as the 8.25

Oh I'm happy enough with 7.50s but I think 8.25s might be even better. I've gotta play musical tires with John and see how the three hundy with the 1.4 tcase turns them before I do anything crazy.
