Default Tires

My Michelin 11/16 XLs have been on the truck for 29 years now and the Marines had them before me. I need to start looking for replacements. What is everyone doing for tires
these days?

HMMWV tires (and wheels) are dirt cheap. But they are far from perfect.

and they are less than 37". The 38" XL/XZL tires fit better.

Continental MPT tires look to be similar to XZL's but are only in 18" and 20" wheels.

Search and you will probably find Michelin 11.00R16 XZL's. Good for another 20 years.

Here XZLs are extremely rare and just as expensive. I had a set of 1100x16 XLs that I got rid of, since I would not be able to get replacements if I damaged a tire.
