If you're after some 8.25x15 XZL's, there's a brand new pair on ebay at the moment, up in Newent, near Gloucester.

Yes, I bought a Dunlop sp111 just after xmas from them to match my exisiting tyres

A set of xzy would be great as a winter set of tyres but not high on my priority list at present as I havn't got rims to put them on and as you can see from the thread thats a whole different problem getting other rims for the Iveco

82.5R16 XZLs fit wonderfully on 6" one piece rims on my wrecked BJ60. I plan to put them on my BJ40 with 4.88 gears and no overdrive.
Incidentally XZYs will NOT make good winter tires, they aren't very good in snow and ice. They are very tough and great for summer desert driving. Being radials with 1 ply steel cord sidewalls they do deflate well for sand. But particularly when worn down they aren't very trustworthy in wet conditions.
