Can we actually get the Michelin XAS FF here in North America, or is this a Europe only tire? I have spent an exceptionally modest amount of time searching for these tires, and can't find them listed on any NA sites.


These tyres are available from Michelin motorsport, a regaular tyre shop will not stock them or be able to order them. The XAS FF is a racing tyre that is road legal. Try contacting Michelin direct to get a list of retailers.

Boy did I get screwed by them. Can you tell I'm still pissed off?

Thanks Keith, I will take the warning. I hope you're not upset that I got a good giggle out of your reply.

Thanks as well. I'll give them a call to find out if I can get these in Canada (fingers crossed).
