Michelin Tire Program

Was looking for passenger car tires and one of the local dealers has a policy of only accepting it for passenger/TOAD vehicles when the RV has tires purchased as well.  The nuances of the marketing and implementation are not lining up to make for a happy customer, but then again it is the weekend and there is another dealership chain to check with before I go another route.

 

I would talk to a different dealer. I just bought 4 tires for my toad as a stand alone deal with no problem. Where are you located? Also be aware when the dealer quoted a price it is not the price from Michelin through the program. Get the part number for the tires from the dealer and call the FMCA office to get the program price.

So far I have priced Michelin tires for my SUV & Southwind RV and both times FMCA has gotten blown out. For the RV Michelin 235/80/22.5 FMCA's price was $555.00 for just the tires, I have out the door pricing (mounting, & balancing) for $545.00. 

My SUV 235/60/18 FMCA's price for just tires was $197.00, I paid out the door $197 ea plus was eligible for the $70.00 rebate.

Today is a Great for all Members of the FMCA. With the announcement of the FMCA Michelin Advantage Program, you can now save hundreds, even thousands of dollars on tires for your motor coach. If you have any questions on how this program can benefit you, please feel free to ask. I look forward to answering your questions and assisting you with your purchase.

A special Thank You to Robert (Bob) Johnston for helping a vision come to fruition, the Family Motor Coach Crew and the Michelin Team for all of their hard work and long hours in building this program to suite the needs of FMCA members. And a BIG Thank You to The Owners of My Company, Turbo Truck Center, for allowing me to dedicate my time to help with this project. It is an honor to work with you all and have the opportunity to SERVE the members of the Family Motor Coach Association.

Just used the Advantage Program to purchase 6 tires for my old Southwind.  Saved about $76.00/tire.  Thanks FMCA!

A bit of advice.  Even if the dealer says they deal with motorhomes all the time, and they say they will give you the "freshest" tires they have, be sure to check the date codes on the sidewalls, either before mounting, or before you drive away.  With my purchase, I got the coach home, only to find one tire was manufactured in 2008, and two in 2013!  Luckily I needed to bring it back to get an alignment, and the dealer was willing to swap the older tires for ones manufactured in 2016.

What size tires?  on what make of coach?  Hard to believe that a tire dealer would have 2008 and 2013 new tires in his inventory to begin with!  As for 2016, what is the DOT number?

Yes, as has been discussed many times, best to go into any discussion about new tires telling the salesperson the smallest date code= oldest date code tire you will accept. And, if the salesman looks at you like a deer caught in the headlights, talk directly with their warehouse manager.  If he looks like a deer caught in the headlights, RUN!

Help.  Very frustrated trying unsuccessfully to get tire quotes for Michelin and Continental RV tires.  I am an FMCA member.  I have 295/80R-22.5 Tires.  I want to replace my rear 6 tires.  I want to know pricing, balancing, shipping (if any) and installation costs.  I've not had any success in using the FMCA website for the tire discount programs

I had to look for it to. On the main page in the upper left part of the page they have a slideshow of different programs/benefits. You can use the arrows to cycle through the ads faster.
