I also have the Michelin 180/15 XAS tires. These are 80 series tires. They
look right because they fill the wheel wells. But even better ........ they
give you a bit more ground clearance. That was very noticeable as I drove
around this last summer. There were many times when I expected to heard
that usual scraping sound but did not. It was a very pleasant surprise -
again and again.
