That tire was an alternative for my XM-47's on the Unimog. I think they are non DOT compliant, but I could be wrong. Of course, all Michelin military tires are fantastic. And they used to have those XML's in surplus all the time, but they were probably all 20" rims.

War tire or his many names, Is a scam. He takes a picture of a pile, Then says he has 200 sets and collects. Then as he can find them, You might end up with a set.
Heavy as **** to try and turn unless you have the axles and gears. Plus the fact a jeep with them, You will only need a couple pounds of air they are that thick and stiff. Mainly a mud tire for bubba and his F350 with 17" of lift and 7 shocks per front tire.

I have a YJ on one ton axles, with fuel injected 360. Right now I run 39 boggers. They're just too damn expensive and don't last worth a damn

In that case on ton's and FI 360, You wont be having that problem lol. He is in FL IIRC, IMO go down and pick your set if you go with them. That way you get the tire you paid for and you can also pick out the best four.

At one point he had a few locations/tire yards so one could be close. But I remember him trying to screw people on pirate4x4 a few years back. Another chuckie wenzell lol or however you spell that POS's name. Good luck either way
