In need of tire info

we live in Abbotsford BC and travel down south once in a while. we're looking for a place to buy good tires but of course we don't want to pay for good ones. I've been looking on the internet for tire locations but I am sure there must be more then the few I have found. camping world is the best so far but the price is very steep. Goodyear G670's. 275/70R 22.5 is the size. I looked for tires here in BC but they are quite a bit overpriced. can anyone out there tell me where I can find a good quality tire for a fair price?
thanks. Gerry...................

Les Schwab has a number of locations in the North West USA. They are known for RV tires. I am currently in Junction City Oregon not too far south of you. The local Schwab is very familiar with replacing motorhome tires.

To save money there are a number of good motorhome tire makers today. I have personally owned and used Michelin, Goodyear, BF Goodrich, Firestone, and Dunlop over the last ten years on RVs. All have provided good service. All of the tires I bought were made in the USA. Although most of the first tier industrial countries such as Japan, Germany, England, France, Italy, and Canada, etc should be fine. I would avoid tires made in China.

If you are part of a federation usually they have a plan with the Michelin program.
Just purchased my new Michelin today at a price much lower than the best negotiated price.
For example here in Quebec the FQCC is with Michelin.
In the US they have the same thing.

Last year I bought 7 Toyo tires from TreadDepot.com and they had the best
price anywhere. They were delivered to my house for much less freight cost
as well.

Check out Zylstra's in Lynden, WA. That's where I am going to get my tires, (6) 11R22.5 Hancooks out the door around $2800. Balance on steering only. They handle about 6 brands of big truck/RV tires. Zylstra's are part of a nationwide tire outfit which means service almost anywhere in the US. Don't know about Canada though.
If I had been a little smarter, I should have purchased my tires in Oregon on the way home. No sales tax in Oregon, about 9 percent here in Washington.

Do you have to pay Washington sales tax if you are Canadian? Go to Oregon and escape the tax if you are subject to it.

I had a very positive experience 8 months ago buying MH tires in Oregon. I can recommend GCR Tires in Coburg Oregon, right beside I-5 just north of Eugene.

I have looked the website above to compare exactly the same tire a purchased via the Michelin program.

Tire Michelin XRV 225/70/19.5

Price on the above website is 414 + 17 for delivery for a total of 431/tire

Michelin program delivered price is 351.

That is 80$/tire times 6.

The FMCA program or the Canadian one for the same Michelin tire is much less expensive

Actually if I considered the currency the difference would even be bigger.

The Toyo tires 147's are a terrific tire and the price is as good as good as any out there. Plus no sales tax in Oregon. Les schwab is good for their service.
