X2 for the Tire Rack. They are the title sponsor for the Sports Car Club of America national Solo (Autocross) championship. 1100+ entries, and we compete every year.

However, don't forget that FMCA has a discount program for Michelin tires. Several posters have indicated excellent prices from them.

Just for reference the tire rack website is http://www.tirerack.com/ and their price for a 225/70x19.5 Michelin XRV is $420.00

I used to autocross with the owner back when he started out in an old gas station on the east side of Indy in 1982, and now he's one of the largest tire retailers in the USA. TireRack guys know their stuff!

Be careful on tire size width variation. You can get in trouble real quick with space between the duals. Your 1982 may have been bias ply oem vs. radial, radials tend to give more sidewall bulge.

This scared the devil out of me when I installed them but I ran a thread on the Ford forum and others gave me input that I was okay. 10,000 miles so far no problems.

Thanks, What tire size did you go with? and brand. Looks like a nice tread pattern . I had Michlens on one of my Grand Marque, they were okay but I liked the Perrellis. Yes on the bias plys the spare is still one and I wouln't be surprised if it is the orgineral.

It's unfortunate that you're too far east to have access to Les Schwab Tire Centers. We've used our local ones for over 30 years and have never had an issue. Free flat repairs, free rotation and very knowledgeable people.

Wen we got our current rig, the tires on it were 9 years old. I went to the Schwab place in town, said I wanted a new set of six tires for the RV and the manager searched the database for the newest he could find. They were only six weeks old.

A few years back we had a Honda Accord and a front tire (OEM) disintegrated after hitting freeway debris. Schwab replaced it at no charge,when I went in to get a replacement, even though it wasn't one of theirs.

Note - I have no connection with Schwab other that being a very satisfied customer.
