Xds2 are kings up here on rough stuff But holy moly $$$ with any Michelin right now. I'm hearing 1100$ a tire, if they can be had. I prefer with my units to run xdn2, just for the fact I can rotate them yearly to keep them dead even.
I have a new unit that came with Hankooks I'm not caring for.
For the 1st time I'm having to look at cheaper rubber. Sailun makes a nice tread pattern for winter, with real soft rubber. I'd expect not to get 2 years or 80k km out of em.
Westlake makes a similar pattern. $300 canadian pesos.
Tough call. I have a set of xdn2s, 6 years and 250km+ on em, still 13mm or better. (>60%).
They will weather crack before they wear out.
