The Michelin XCX/APT is a private label tire built by Michelin for Sears and NTB. There
is another tire sold by the same company's called a Michelin XC/LT4. This tire is more similar to the Michelin LTX M/S, in fact it's almost identical. The construction of the two tires are the same, just the tread blocks are very slightly different, but use the same concept of a good highway tread design. The XC/LT4 is comparable and costs less.
The XCX/APT is a more agressive tread design as far as the tread blocks go but does not have a whole lot of tread siping. It is comparable to a Michelin LTX A/T. None of the Michelin LTX series tires are discontinued. They are their bread and butter as far as the light truck tire market goes. Sears and NTB can get these tires via special order and will take just a few days to get as long as they are available at Michelin.
