Sounds like a Volvo or a minivan. Eitherway, your tire circumferance is the same as mine. These very high profile tires tend to have a lot of understeer. I always like to look for something that has a stiff sidewall for these instances. I have not seen Michelin's hype on the X-One. You might take a look at the Bridgestone Potenza RE900 or RE92. Both of these tires were recommended by the TireRack. They have a nice 30day return warranty, a 40,000mi prorated warranty, and are pretty inexpensive. I happen to be a big fan of Michelin myself, but MX4's in 205/70 14", the last time I check the TireRack, were like $75 each! Ouch! One other comment, the X-Ones are a whitewall tire in your size, which often looks odd at least to me. Unfortunately I have not found this site to be overly helpful for non-high performance tires.
