I hope to be able to let you know in a few weeks as my fiancee just got new MX4's on her '89 Volvo 240 Wagon (GVWR 4300Lbs, RWD). I must say they are much quieter and stickier than her previous "no-name" tires which were very poor. I can say that I had little choice as I wanted to mount the oem fitment size of 185R14 which has a very high sidewall. So far they have been super tires. Two thoughts, 1) try asking michelin, 2) my understanding was that the X-One was one of those "unlimited mile" tires. Translation: a very hard, long wearing rubber that has very little grip. To me this alone sounds bad for performance wet and dry. What size tire do you need?
