Bummer! Just looked outside and found my driver side rear tire is flat! Now I need to check into new tires, Looking into what's listed here and doing some research, I find that it's more confusing than ever. There's a new load rating of HL, which is more than the XL, but I cannot find any tire out there with that rating, I did see the Michelin Defender LTX M/S tire, with an XL load rating at Discount Tire.
Now, I just bought this GT-Line in AZ, and it was a used model, with the window sticker saying it has 20" tires. Now, as I was re-inflating my tire, I find that it has 19" tires. I'm not exactly happy with this discovery, but it is what it is.
Anyway, I need to come up with a good tire, and don't want noisy tires, since I really, really enjoy the quiet ride.
Is your flat tire pluggable? It will depend on the location of the puncture and available tread left. I can't imagine, living in AZ, that you have a need for M/S tires. The Michelins you found will undoubtedly have a much higher rolling resistance than comparable touring tires, which will affect your range.
