FS: NEW MICHELIN XS World's Best Sand Tires 7.50/R16

Ok I have re-booted my Sheikh-Mobile from Dubai. Now have FOUR NEW Army issue Michelim XS tires and ONE older Yokohama Michelin-clone as a spare tire. The 4 new tires have less than 10 miles on them and we shipped new with my truck. Only mounted for Export inspection and now sitting in my basement taking up space. Does not include the Steel rims. Can ship or RURR in North East USA (Between Boston and NoVa)... if you are beach running the Hamptons or Nanatucket or getting ready for next years OEX these are the tires. Tom Sheppard in the Handbook for Vehicle Dependent Expeditions the BEST sand tire in the world. Asking $800 for the package of five tires. Note, its $1,400 from Rovers North for four of the nearest similar military Michelins!

Sorry No payment plans for this one. They would be awesome on Florida beaches though!

These came from military stock and the only code I can find that looks like a date stamp is 4807 which could be November 2007. Note there is nothing in the UAE Army that is not stored in highly air conditioned facilities and this came from Sheikh Maktoum, the Ruler of Dubai's fleet. They are also marked "Tubeless" and "Made in Germany". Let me know by PM if interested. I take paypal ;-)

That's exactly where we're going in October! Tire prices are nuts in Zambia.
