    If the cost difference between tires was huge I would agree but they are not for me. I run 11r24.5 and Michelin is same price as Bridgestones and other brands are only $10-40 cheaper at most. I did steers couple months ago, Bridgestone 213 (top of the line) and Firestone 591 price difference was $17.

    I’ve seen huge price differences for low pro 22.5 but in my case there isn’t.

    X-line energy D is about the same as the Bridgestone m713. The x-line energy d+ though is literally about 20% better, but isn’t available in the 11r24.5 size that I need.

    Now I just need some data to see how the x-line energy d wears and how long it lasts.

    It's all I run, and they wear about like anything else, 200 to 250K in my application.

    What I like best about them is that they are very good on snow and ice.

    You always want a tire with low Rolling Resistance with these high fuel cost. When i first started i ran cheap tires and was lucky to get 150k out of tires.. Went back to Michelin tires and even after 200k they have PLENTY of life left in em.
