Michelin XZL's 7.50 R 16

The ones you can't get here. Anyone looking for a set ? Thinking of importing some.
No idea what they have been going for.

I bought a set of 5 for $125 each, shipped. Should have bought more of them, but wanted to make sure they were good. They were brand new and very fresh , but someone else bought the whole lot before I had a chance to grab them.
They look great on series vehicles, but are a little puny for a defender with any kind of lift/mods,imo.
Can you get them in the 8.25x16 size? Those would be very nice for a 90.

Guys, these XZL 7.50 R16 tires will fit into the stock freestyle wheels from a 94 D90 right? Thanks!

all gone now. I bought the 10 then called back the next day to buy the remaining 9 he had in stock and they were gone. I was just lucky trolling the Net and found a tire wholesaler that had them. In talking with him I don't think he realized what he had. I think he originally had around 30-40 and he sold them all in about three days. If he gets them again I imagine they will be much higher in price.
they will fit an NAS D90 but will look very skinny compared to the original 265 tire. a friend put a set on his D2 and they actually look pretty cool. I think they are only speed rated for 85 mph though. BUt what LR goes faster than that? He took the D2 from GA to MAR and said they drove fine on the HWY. they really dug into the dirt at MAR.

If you can get them cheap enough, bring em on in. You will not have any trouble selling boatloads of them if they are priced right. Probably need to be under $175 per ,imho.

Was thinking of putting a set of them mounted on wolfs on a truck I have in the Uk and selling them when it comes off the ship here. The wheel tire combo is 124 gbp ea so doesn't look like it makes much sense. Thanks for the input.

I think new xzl tires on new wolf wheels would be worth around $1000-$1200. so might be worth it. I think that price would still make you a little money.
