Two years ago I replaced my six year old 255x80x22.5 XRVs due to severe weather cracking with XZA2 Energy 275x70x22.5 to get a beefier tire with stronger sidewalls and hopefully away from the zipper blowouts I'd been reading about on the XRVs. They seem to ride just a little firmer (but who can really tell considering the harsh ride of the Freightliner XC chassis anyway), no squirming, and require about 10-15 lbs less air pressure to carry the same load as the XRVs. So far, I'd do the same thing again.

I replaced the Goodyears on my Allegro Bus with XZE's and found them to be a major improvement in every way!

Looking for tires for Sunova 26p

Do I need Michelins as mine are 6 years old and have plenty of tread but small cracks on side. Any suggestions as this is the first class A I've owned and $2400 seems like a lot of money for 5000 miles a year to just throw them away.Michael J. MacEwan

Michelin says that if the cracks are 1/32" deep or less then they're OK to run. Between 1/32" and 2/32" deep they should be inspected. Deeper than 2/32" they should be replaced.

I replaced our XZE's after 8Ĺ years which was a little sooner than I wanted but the 305/70's I needed on the front were in short supply so when they came in I jumped.

I just noticed yesterday that my 06 Meridian has XZE's on the front and XRV's on the rear. I've only owned it about two weeks. They both seem to be a good tire.
