    On a Michelin tires of course. If those are produced locally even in Russia, surely same is true for China.

    I expressed puzzlement over you calling Typhon MRAP a Chinese vehicle in the original post. I`m quite confident they haven`t counterfeited it just yet.

    That particular style (Michelin XZL) seems very popular.

    Yes, they're but they're not the only ones used by the Bundeswehr.

    Here is a MAN Kat 1 8x8 with at least three diffrent types of tires.



    These are used on the Fuchs (Fox) APCs, too. Don't know which brand and type they're?

    That's not what I intended to say with what I wrote. Just that they're not the only ones used with our military.

    Puffy is just a little under-worked. Maybe not enough bucket lifting with Bubba and Joe on the WE?

    Btw, I've just noticed that the MAN 8x8 isn't road legit as it seems it has two diffrent types of tires on the front axle (left/right) which is a no go with the German road traffic licensing regulations. Diffrent types for each axle is ok but not two diffrent types on one axle.
