Thumbs up surprise

I am literally on the phone checking prices with 5+ truck centers that will mount 22.5 tires. Just received a call from the Chevrolet dealership (has a truck center) and they just came in with the lowest prices on 235/80R22.5 Michelins. $3028 out the door, incl tax and tire disposal.

This price is about $600 under most of my other quotes. It is based on a price that rivals the Costco prices, once you allow for installation/disposal. This price is just $250 more than Sumitomo, $200-500 less than quotes on Bridgestone!!!

Tires are not in stock, but 1-2 day delivery.

Plenty of Chevy dealers on your way home, check with them.

Waiting for the final numbers but at Tommy Tire House in Bloomington/Normal, IL I was quoted an installed price of $450/tire plus $17/tire for balance. That is before the FMCA discount.

235/80R 22.5 Michelin XRVs.

Just a quick question for someone who's never owned a class A... how long do those $3300/set tires last..?

Most motor home owners change the tires on a time basis and never wear out the tread. How long the tires last has been debated, but most of us change them at the 7 year point. Some folks use 5 years, and some try to stretch it to 10 years.

They probably think you were asking for "in stock" over the phone. Ask them to whip out their catalog as they need to be ordered. Better yet go there. Same at Sam's Club.

I tried at our local Sam's Club and they couldn't even find them. By the way, I drove on a set of Michelins for 14 years without a problem...finally traded motorhomes and let someone else worry about the tires.

Michelin says to have them checked by a dealer every year starting at the fifth year, and absolutely replace at 10 years. I went 8 years on mine with no troubles and very little checking/cracking.
No such thing as a "7 year rule" but Michelin says that as tires age they become more susceptible to problems which makes sense. That's just like people too.

Sam's even has 315/80 22.5 they can order. Just a couple days. No install of course. They have ALL the big sizes from the master Sam's tire catalog. I saw them all on the catalog screen - accessible only by Sam's personnel. Clearly, the guy you talked with doesn't know they can order tires - unless some locations can't order?

I just went thru the FMCA/Michelin Advantage Program. I had to call Michelin and register my AMEX card with them. Went to the dealer, the 255/80R/22.5 XRV's were installed. Paid the dealer for the labor to install, rebuild the stems, balancing, etc., then they billed Michelin thru their national account system and Michelin emailed me a copy of the amount they billed my AMEX card. The price for these tires thru this program was $476.91 plus $16.07 F.E.T per tire. Just FYI for anyone interested.
