8.25x16 Michelin XZL's in Canada

Nothing to do with me... I'm in 'lil old England, looking for some 7.50 XZL's on ebay, and this advert pops up for 8.25 XZL's in Ontario

Slightly too far for me, but might help someone on here a bit!

Wow, he is only about 20 minutes away from me. May have to have a look.

Do these fit on a regular rim?

Nice size but they look a bit worn. He has a bunch of military style michelins in stock. The 9.00s are a bit big at 36" and very heavy.

Hi Robin,

Do you mean the 8.25 or the 9.00 ?

I would be interested in the 9.00 XLs, if I had some confidence that replacements could be found...

The 8.25 XZL is factory fitment on our G Wagens so they are now relatively common. These look pretty worn though. I ran 900R16 XLs and they are nothing special, you'd be better off with something that does not have a steel sidewall.

Hi JL,
Thanks.
That is clear.
Am running 35x10.50R16 SSRs, now.
Was looking for something of equal OD or a little taller and also not wide.
There's a bias ply tire in the 9.00x16 size, but I've not found very much from folks who have used it, especially on a Rover...

Are they available new in Canada? If so, where?

i thought those ssr run a little smaller than advertised... closer to a 34... a 9.00r16 xl is about a 36.1...

As a civvy obtaining any of the Michelin military tyres in NEW condition has always been awkward to impossible without friends in very low and very dark places.

Whatever is surplus used is open to anyone to buy via various auctions and then on to retail buys.

All military sizes from Iltis tyres right up through some very big ones are around and will be for a while used. Buyer beware etc etc.

Hi Mark,

You're right. The 35x10.50R16 SSRs are listed at just a bit over 35" - something like 35.3" OD IIRC.

Yes, I am looking to get to a 36" OD..., if possible.

There's a tire from STA, called the Superlug, that is 9.00x16, but it is bias ply and I've not been able to find too many folks who have used it. They have two load ratings in that size, D and G.
