IMHO, the Michelin XZX is a lousy tire. In particular, they really stink in
the wet. Definitely not worth $100 a pop.
No kloo about availability of Dunlops or Pirelli. I haven't seen them
around in a 165SR14 for years. Of course, I haven't been actively looking
The Avon Turbosteel is an excellent tire, and an excellent value. Better
than Michelin (subjective judgement), and 30% cheaper. Only other tire I've
bought at that price was some off-brand (Tribune?) that were positively
*dreadful*. No grip at all, spun wheels on dry pavement (don't even ask
about wet) and lasted less than two years.
