Sorry, but they *are* the same tire. At least the carcas, sidewalls, belts, tread compound, speed rating and construction are the same ;-) Michelin builds the X-Radial Plus, Sears Roadhandler T-Plus and X-One on the same assembly line...pausing only to change the tire mold for the variations. The tread pattern is different from variation-to-variation but they are fundamentally the same thing. How do I know? My brother-in-law works in the Michelin plant in Bridgewater, N.S., Canada...one of the plants which produce the X-One. I suppose *he* should know. Shhhh.
