Just sourced some wider mil spec wheels for my truck

Now just wondering about the tyres, getting very tempted to go for a set of XZL clones, cos they will look the biz and are a standard firtment on the Iveco

So 6 of them (2 spares) , just a tad under 1400 quid - ouch !

Search for yellowsea ys20 for pics

Is this the one?

Scary price! Seems like an awful lot of dosh for an unproven Chinese tyre, think I'd like to know a bit more about them from existing owners before I would commit.

That is one gnarly looking tyre, curious note in the description about using the tube to air down to zero? are the tyre walls that stiff that they will support the vehicle?
Airing down with tubes in increases the risk of pinch flats doesn't it?  scratching chin 

Answers please in writing.
