Those are sweet... the 8.25s are the ideal ones though(unless you're going conventional)

These are hard tires to sell if you only have four. Nobody wants to run a weirdo tire without any spares.

Sounds like a statement to buy some time for someone interested in buying them.

LOL, given that he's been trying to sell them since September, I'm not really worried. 9.00's are huge, too, unless you're building a buggy.

no affiliation...

Have exchanged emails with these folks, but have not made a purchase.

Found a Dodge forum where the customer who owns the Cummins in the photos said he has had both the real ones and these and liked these better... (might have the link somewhere, not sure)

Have also read that the real ones are 'treacherous" on wet roads and guess the same goes for ice and snow, so assume the same for these, but guess one could get them siped.

Lastly, they said that they just got the one container full, but did not plan to do it again. YMMV.

I ran 900R16 Michelin XLs on my old 109 and they were absolutely lethal in the wet and extremely dangerous in snow. I would not recommend them. Actually I would recommend NASCAR slicks before these. And wooden wagon wheels also. They are great for a 20K GVWR army truck but on a Land-Rover they are really bad.

I've run XZLs for two years now in Tacoma, WA. It rains almost every day here for eight months of the year. I've never noticed any slipperiness in wet weather. As for snow, these tires kick ass there, too. I took mine on a 1,500 mile trip around the northern Rockies in the dead of winter and they did great. Never had any issues and did a lot of driving on mountain trails in deep snow.

I didn't experience traction issues in the rain, but I am driving carefully in adverse conditions since I am driving a 300 TDI 90.

to be fair I don't spend inordinate of time in my rig in the wet weather, not sure if the 300 TDI helps this issue since I am not spinning tires either way

Chris and JT, I think JL and I were referring to the XZLs in the larger (255/100R16 / 9.00R16) size. I've not heard bad things about the 7.5R16 / 235/85R16 size...
