FMCA/Michelin tire deal

Have been looking for tires the past couple of weeks. FMCA now has a discount program with michelin. Substantial Savings. Read about the program on the FMCA website.

Terrific. They fumbled this deal last winter and so I bought new tires a couple months ago. Now they finally get it going.

I emailed FMCA, it's not retroactive, only new purchases.

(Which I already knew!)

I just read through the instructions on the FMCA site, it does not give either a dollar or percentage. Makes it sound like you have to buy the tires to find out what the discount is? I find that pretty useless.

Not true... you can get an estimate from the tire dealer first. This type of program has been available to the FMCA Chapter - Monaco International for some time now and it probably is the same discount schedule. While I can't tell you what I gave for my tires as members are not suppose to reveal that, I can tell you that I saved at least $1000 on my 8 295/80R22.5 tires just a few weeks ago.

I sounds like a real cluster.....something.....to me. It's a discount off of the "retail" price, not the street price. If you see a great price listed on Michelin's don't expect a substantial saving (or any saving) using the FMCA discount. It's certainly worth getting a quote, but "discount from retail" and the price you would pay from a high volume retailer may or may not be less with the FMCA "discount". Do your homework and ensure that what you get is what you expected.

Tony Lacey is the POC for this deal. He made this post on the Tiffin RV Network forum.

There seems to be a lot of chatter about this program, and rightfully so. I assure you as the person that set the program up that this deal CANNOT be beat! You do not have to purchase the tires without knowing the price, you may ask your dealer to provide you with the "ADVANTAGE" pricing for the tires. There are NO secrets with this program, it is in its infancy and everyone will become more versed in time just be patient. You may call me, Tony Lacey, at 678-410-1431 for information/price.

Information in red was deleted by the TRVN so I added it for this post.

Price for Michelin 275 80R 22.5 XZA3+ LRG is $478.25 Plus FET of $25.23 for each tire.

Price for Michelin 275 80R 22.5 XZA3+ LRH is $500.96 Plus FET of $34.59 for each tire.

The amount I will receive for the casings will cover the cost of dismounting and mounting of new tires.

Plus I will not (per dealer) have to pay any sales tax.

I got my 275/70 22.5 ZXA3 LRH for just less than $1 over $500 each and my front 305/70 22.5 's for just over $610 each. Guess I did OK as the prices included FET. They traded the mounting and balancing for my old tires and wheels. (I put Alcoa wheels on at the same time)

The following is my research as of last fall. I believe there has been a price increase since then; however, this shows that the discount is off the NAFA Base Price. I actually, now have, the NAFA Price List which I was given by the dealer. I also noticed, the last time I looked, that the web site is now quoting something less than the 46% discount. I think it was 42%... I will have to check again to make sure.
I just did a quick check of the web site and did not see the discount stated on the main page as they did in the past.



I have done a little research on the Advantage Discount program and here is what I have found out.

The Advantage Program web site:
Michelin Americas Truck Tires advantage-program Page

states this: "New Tires: 46% discount off the current NAFA Base Price List".

In talking to the a Michelin Territory Manager for Washington, I found that the Advantage Discount price is just about the same as the price quoted to me by the local Michelin dealer.


Michelin 275/80 R22.5 XZA3 LR-H (prod #61912)

The dealer quote:
$498.58, FET $34.59, total = $533.17

Terr. Mgr quote: (with Advantage 46% discount)
$470.90, FET $34.59, total = $505.49

What this shows me is that the NAFA Base Price must be around $687.51

While it is probably possible to get similar pricing on your own by shopping around and finding a dealer who discounts, I think the average RV owner will benefit greatly form this program. Simply calling a nearby Michelin dealer and getting the "best price" (or something very close to it) has gotta be a plus for most buyers.
