Oh Boy, new tires!

I gotta do it. I have the 08 Sea Breeze with original tires (no need to comment) that I gotta replace. I have 22.5 and I know the RV Dealers are chompin at the bit for me to come in, but I ain't gonna do that. I am looking for suggestions and and idea of the cost.

If you are a FMCA member you could use the Michelin discount program. You can go on the FMCA website and check the prices. Just remember that is only for the tires you still have to pay to have them mounted. Before you buy that way shop around there are times you can find deals that will beat the Michelin deal price.

I purchased new Michelins trough the FMCA program. I am very happy with the tire performance and I couldn't find anyone to meet or beat the FMCA program. If you are not a FMCA the program is worth becoming a member to participate. Also, many other benefits that make membership worthwhile.

I replaced my 4 rear tires (22.5") with Toyo about 1 1/2 years ago and have about 12,000 miles on them. Good tires so far. Four cost $1608 mounted from local tire shop.
Price included disposal for the old Michelins. Found out later I could have sold my old tires.

You could also swap your old tires for the mounting, balancing and valve stem replacement charges.

Just put on six Firestone FS591 in size 295/75R 22.5 LRH tires. Replaced cracked michelin tires. Maiden voyage was positive experience. $2804 out the door, minus the $500 I got from selling the old tires on Craigslist.

Is that 2804 after you sold the tires?

Replaced two front that looked good but were aged out. With the Westlake tires above... Had a local dealer install them for a fee... Great riding and long lasting tires... I'd sure do this again when the other 6 need replacing. 1999 Tropi-cal. Ford V10 F53 Chassis. 1st trip over 1000 miles. Great ride!

I went with Michelins, but next time I would consider toyo tires from Les Schwab people seem to be happy with them and less expensive even after you factor in the FMCA discount on Michelins.

I think I will look into Les Schwab. I like the people and the service. Toyo is a good tire. Alot of commercial trucks use them. I just need to be in an area for Schwab. Thanks

If you're thinking Les Schwab, look for one in Oregon...no sales tax

$2804.00 for the new tires - installed, balanced, taxes, etc.
Sold old tires for $500.00.
So net cost $2304.00.

This is the third set of removed motorhome tires I have sold over the years via Craigslist.

Thx
Vince
