Do any of you out there know of a way to get the newest Michelin XRV tires possible and where?
MyCoolBeans...

I contacted our Michelin dealer here in Spokane last week and found the he had several 275/80 R2.5 XZA3's in stock and had an order of 100 more coming next week.

He said that he is the supplier for a large local trucking company that goes through a lot of that model of tire, so he gets a lot of them and they have a very current mfg date.

So, I guess that's the key... one needs to find a Michelin dealer that deals in large quantities of truck tires.

I mention the XZA's because that was what I was looking for, but I found XRV's also. The XRV's were at another dealer and had a mfg date of 47th week of 2009.
