Where did you order them from? I'll probably order mine from Superior Tire in Portland.

Are you getting the wider wheels to go with the tires?

I finally called FMCA and they gave me the number of four dealers close to me, a couple that I didn't know about and one of them had four, they said they would try to find me two more, they called two days later and found two, said he would honor the FMCA deal for all six tires, originally he thoughts he'd have to charge a premium for the extra two. I'm not sure on DOT dates, but at this point what choice do I have.



They get installed this next week, but I'll avoid Michelin on all other vehicles because of this "shortage" and I'll try to buy my next coach with a more standard size.



One other note - CampingWorld had them for almost $800/tire, I told them at that price they can rot on the shelf, they don't honor the FMCA or WIT programs.

Brand new ( manufactured 3 weeks ago) Michelin XRV 255/80R/22.5 tires are available from Simpletire.com for about $570 each with military discount.

Ordered mine yesterday, shipping today to my installer. Michelin paying 75% of steers price and 70% of other 4.

I will keep the two inside rears as emergency spares.



Cheers!

Ordered at Phelps tire Seattle. Needed to get in line since oems will get first grab. There are two 365s by Michelin. number 71842 $752 +$33 fet and number 52215 $656 + $33 fet. Both part numbers and prices are fmca advantage pricing. I was told by Michelin that the 71842 was oem and 52215 is consumer. I will wait a couple of weeks before giving my card number to Michelin since they only keep the number for 30days.
I did order new wheels. They take 4 to 6 weeks.

Update-
Wheels came in a few weeks ago but still am waiting for tires. Michelin said they are in production and backorders will be filled first but they have no idea when they will start flowing to warehouses. It seems odd to me that a company would put themselves in a position to not have any product to sell. This is not just an rv thing. I have 2 other truck tire orders in with the same results.

Thanks for the update, guess I better get ready to order two for the front axle since they're the most critical. Really need four and four 315/80's but the budget just won't stretch that far till at least Feb.
