Not those, but SO FAR, I haven’t had issue with the Nexen's I put on the
front of the square, we'll see how they feel on the rear when the Federals
finally wear
Out back there.  Havent put the Nexen's thru a frog choking gullywasher yet

It's been a LONG time since I could buy my favorite Michelin 165SR15 XZX
tires, and our size has completely disappeared from all the major tire
lineups. Since then, we've all been scrambling for a reasonable alternative.

Everything now available seems to come from S. Korea or SE Asia.

Richard Spryer and I have been looking together and both of us found the
Americus Touring Plus All-Season Tire - 165/80R15 87T. It's available here:


Price is an extremely reasonable US$62.60 each, with free shipping.

Does anyone have any experience with these?
