    XZX in 165 size is only 25.4" OD ; XAS in 180 is 26.8" OD

    Check Longstone, too.

    I have 5.5 inch wide wire wheels, what size tire do you think will be best to fill in the wheel well arch and not look out of place? I don't want the tires to stick out from the fenders.

    Bob: 'BTW my wires have had the treatment and I do not have tubes - works for me.' Kindly expand - some sort of religious epiphany? or a magic sealant? Thanks, Doug

    You can't go wrong with the 180s. Many satisfied users.

    Previously I ran the 185/70 vredesteins. Good tires. Less ground clearance and not quite as good a ride. Also the 180s look better, which is most important, as after all, it's all performance art anyway.

    My wheels were obtained - "pre loved" they are chrome with SS spokes and came with the sealant already applied, which I believe was factory finish. As they are holding pressure without any problems - "they work for me".

    Does anyone have pictures of the Michelin XAS tires in 180HR15 installed on their car with 5.5 wide wheels?

    Looks like the XZX tires then, I'm going to do some more research on the Vredstein tires also.
