Just Got My New Michelin 365s

I ordered 2 365/R70/22.5 almost eight weeks ago and just got them using the Michelin Advantage Program. I'm going to be replacing my existing 315s with the 365 and new Alcoa rims.
I have also purchased 8 new SmartTire Sensors and will be installing all this using Dyna Beads this Thursday.
Any words of wisdom you can pass on would be greatly appreciated!

Where are you getting them and how much? Thought I was going to order two (and I still might) but I just had a car wreck and our ded. is $1,000. First wreck since high school and I'm 68 now!
Be sure they use the correct stems with filters on them if the Dyna Beads need them. Some beads are large enough they don't need the filters and some aren't.

Mr_D: So sorry to hear about your wreck! The saying "... when it rains it pours.." seems to fit you pretty well! I know how you feel as I had one last year around this time also. My deductible was high also plus it really didn't help my vehicle insurance premiums either!

I got the tires through a local Michelin dealer using the FMCA Advantage Program. With tax it will be around $680 each.
The Dyna Bead office told me that the ones I got do not need special stems as they are bigger.

I think I'll call Superior Tire in Portland and see if they can get any. The tires on the rig look great but they are OEM so age is a problem. I should probable get new SmarTire sensors too.

I got mine through Kevin Waite - $650 for 8 including reprogramming the Controller and shipping. I was having trouble with some of mine. This was in part that I messed them up when I was trying to reprogram them. My two existing 315 tires in front are new, so I'm putting those in the back probably on the drive axle. It was suggested that should replace the sensors since they are eight years old.

What are your date codes? There still back ordered here on the west coast. They must be starting to hit the warehouses now so I might be getting a call.

I have 315's on the front of my Magna, will need new fronts soon. have thought about 365's, Do I need new wheels to do that? If so, does anyone know what new ones from Alcoa cost? If they're way expensive I'd probably just go with 315's again

You need 10" wide rims for the 365's. Nothing less according to the Michelin spec's. There is one person on the site that is doing just that and bought the wider rims.
Our rig has the 365's on the front and tag and they are 10" wide rims.

I asked at Prevost in Ft Worth, and they quoted about $600. Have you weighed your front end to see if you even need the bigger tire?

Finally Installed 365s!

I finally got my 365/R70/22.5 Michelin tires installed on new 10.5" Alcoa rims. I was a bit apprehensive about the fit, but was pleasantly surprised that everything worked out - no modifications, just the rims and the tires!
Cost: Tires through Michelin Advantage for around $685 each including tax. Rims, $485 + tax (Alcoa 10.5x22.5 model number 803601). Replaced all SmarTire sensors and reprogrammed the controller, $650. Dyna Beads for all 8 tires $220. Cats Eye Tire Pressure Equalizer, $164. Dismount and remount of all 8 tires labor, $320. The entire package cost $3,752.

My only disappointment is after the tire shop had my front wheels off, I noticed the tire date is 39/14, and I waited eight weeks to get the tires - for sure I was hoping fresher, 2015 date tires! I'll call Michelin, but will probably do no good.

Hard to get young DOT's now, hope they start flowing soon. Probably too late bow, but worth gonping back and asking for a cost adjustment on the tires. They're about a year old now, so 1/7th of their practical life expectancy is behind them. If no refund od some of the cost to the tires, perhaps some other future credit for services?

But, congrats on the new wheels, and tires too!

Last time got MH tires the shop wouldn't even go look at the dates for me, nor would the guarantee new dates.

Smitty: Thanks for the good wishes - I appreciate it.

I did call the Michelin Advantage Agent today but to no avail. To them, anything less than two years is like new. After getting my charge statement from them I also saw that there was an additional $82 MI Sales tax added on bringing my total tire cost to $731 each plus the installation cost - noting to write home about the big savings from Michelin Advantage Program!
