I am looking to replace the current Michelin 275/70/22.5 XZA2 Energy Tires soon DOT early 2009. But according to Michelin these tires are on back order. But I did heard back from a local Michelin dealer here in the the Houston TX area that he can get a set of 6 Michelin XZE2+ 275/70/22.5 tires and he is checking on the dates.
Here are the specs on both tires.

Michelin Americas Truck Tires XZA2® Energy™ Page
No real difference in size, or load ratings, both LR J. The Energy tire is designated as an RV tire and the XZEA2+ is designated as a regional tire.
I am going through the FMCA Michelin Advantage Program and the dealer does participate in the program. The XZE2+ is not listed in the Michelin Advantage Tire brochure but the dealer said another customer had talked with FMCA and said that they were also included.
Before I go further, does anyone have any experience with this tire or any comments. Thanks
