Michelin Tires needed
« on: June 05, 2019, 10:51:09 PM »
Need to get 2 new tires for the front of the Beaver.  Is there still any kind of FMCA discount?  Would any one have an idea about the availability to get them somewhere on I-10?

yes you need to get approval through Mich or have the tire dealer get it for you.  Need name, address and fmca number and a credit card.

Works real nice and all yu pay the dealer is the install charge.

Gunther, call the closest Michelin truck tire dealer to check for availability of the tire size  you need and verify they participate in the FMCA tire discount program. We recently purchased 2 Michelin 295- 80r -22.5 tires and paid a little over 700.00 each,  plus balance and mounting, hope this helps.

Gunther-
Before leaping, consider checking the price of a pair of Toyo tires.  Many here consider them at least as good a tire and a better value, even without the FMCA discount.

Or even Sumitomo tires.... great quality and works very well for me and..... cheaper price.

Walmart sells Toyo commercial tires.
 I recently purchased 4 - M144 / 295/R8022.5 tires for $368.65 each online.
FedEx Delivery was free and took about 5 days. No problem delivering to my space at RV Park.
Prior to ordering I had arranged pickup at RV Park and installation from a local tire dealer.
Very pleased with the tires and extremely pleased with the price.
