Thanks Don. I think I'm going to go with the Bridge stones r283 295/75r22.5H. The origionals were Goodyear g670 275/80r22.5H. I want to keep the same load rating that came with the Dp.

If you are worried about sidewall cracking on Michelins you might check out the X ze model it has a little tougher sidewall but you compromise ride

That's really a good price. Do you order through FMCA?

What Brand tire?

I am confused. When I purchased tires to get the FMCA pricing the process was to find a Michelin dealer with the tires you wanted in stock, or one who could get them within 30 days, then register your credit card with Michelin, have the tires installed, and Michelin charges your credit card for the tires. You pay the dealer direct for mounting, balancing, etc.

I see discussions about "ordering" from Michelin and charges for freight. Can you really get tires through the FMCA this way? I did not pay freight nor "order" through the FMCA.

When I got 2 steer tires from Pets in Quartzite I paid him for mounting and Michelin for the tires. When I got the tears in Phoenix I paid the whole bill to them as they worked with Michelin same price as quoted from FMCA

Thanks Steve! That's the kind of news I want to hear!

Anyone else that can comment on this question?

Went back to XZA2 Energy on front. Last ones were 8 years old and still looked new.

I know everyone likes to change their tires early, Michelins, but I have always been a hanger on, my coach has just changed hands and now resides in MI. a few miles from here, made the 1000 mile+ trip with out any problems on 13 year old drive tires and the good handling habits of new owner, she will be getting new tires for travel to the PNW for work in the fall.
I think we both got our full value of the Michelins.

Well, believe it or not, I finally made a decision on the tires!

I mentioned earlier that I could not see any unusual wear on my old GY tires, but after looking at the photo Dutch Star Don posted, I went back for another look. I still could not really see much problem, but after feeling the tires around the area closest to the side, I could clearly feel the scalloping! I had already decided that where there's that much "smoke", there's bound to be a little "fire" and had pretty much decided against the G670's, but finding this sealed the deal!

I got a price of $707.,42 each, including FET, from FMCA, plus local sales tax. To mount the new tires on the front and move one of the old front tires to the back for replacement on the one that got a cut, a local dealer is charging me $117.94 which includes new valve stems!

The new tires will be here today and I hope to have them on the MH tomorrow!

Thanks to all of you for your comments and suggestions!

What is meant by "higher rating"

I'm guessing you bought Michelins for your new steers, which is fine, but, the tire shop I've been dealing with will re-mount a tire on a different rim for $25 a wheel !
