FMCA Michelin Advantage tire purchase

I need 2 tires for my coach and decided to try the FMCA program through Michelin

It took me all of 10 minutes to find a Michelin Advantage store within 10 miles of my home, call and confirm they had tires in stock (they had 6 as they sell lots of them in 275/70R22.5) and then register my credit card with Michelin.

Both the tire center and Michelin were incredibly helpful and easy to deal with. The bill with the FMCA discount will come directly from Michelin. The tire center didn't even need an appointment. Just come on in and they'll set me up. I'll be over there before the week is out

This was too easy

We have heard that this program is quite good in the past as well. Thanks for verifying with your tale as well.

If you own a Monaco product you can join Monaco international and get the tires even cheaper. It works exactly the same as the FMCA program. I just purchased 8 tires through the program.

I used the program last year. Pretty easy to use once I dealt with the shop manager and not the woman in the office that was clueless. Not the programs fault.

After having Goodyears I really appreciate the Michelins, Great tires!!!

FMCA Michelin Advantage

We replaced all six on our DSDP last year and was very pleased with the program. Not really sure how much $$ saved but the ease of service was great. Highly recommend.

Well, I went over and got my tires this morning at TCi Tire Center on W Glenn St in Tucson. I pulled right in, they directed me to park under a canopy and had a fellow on the rig before I walked into the office. The fellow there was very well acquainted with the FMCA Michelin Advantage program and knew exactly what needed to be done. I think I was in the waiting room maybe 45 minutes and I was on my way. Everything went exactly as described on the FMCA web site. I'm the proverbial happy camper. The bill will come directly from FMCA/Michelin via email and be reflected on my next VISA statement. The tires were dated from the 11th week of 2013

TCi also has 24/7 road service. If you're in this area and need tires or tire service I would highly recommend them

But who pays retail? The difference between the regular price and the Advantage Program price for a 275/80R22.5 XZE2 at Love's Truck Stops is $27. But it's still worth it when you buy 6 at a time.

We used the FMCA program a couple of months ago and it saved us a bunch of money. Was very easy to do the process and was very easy with a local tire store near out location. We did all six tires only because the GY were close to the end of recommended life on our unit. It's a good program.

What I meant by "retail" was, that I was actually quoted that price by a non Michelin advantage tire shop
Jus sayin...
