Do michelins stretch?

Would a 225 stretch good on a 9.5?

Any tire will stretch. There are guys out there who stretch a 205 on a 10" so what you want is completely doable if you like the look of it.

yes i am aware of that but my question is that are they prone to fail pop bubble quicker than other tires. i just want to hear some positive reinforcement that people have done it before .

Is there a specific reason you're asking about Michelins or are you just looking for a good tire to stretch?
