xml's are michelin military tires, they measure out to 38x13x16, have a very aggressive tread pattern and live to at least 80,000 miles on a pickup. they are re-groovable and are rated for 4600-5000 lbs a peice! runnin them over 20 psi is not a great idea if you still want your fillings!

Slight hi-jack but applicable-

On militarytires.com it says the speed rating for most military tires (xl,xml etc) is 62mph. I was looking into these tires but if they won’t work over 62mph then they won’t work.

Im actually thinking of selling mine along with my lift here pretty soon though.
