Need a little help

After reading many posts on this forum and others I narrowed my replacement tires to Toyo and Hankook. A couple of weeks ago I made an appointment to replace the 7 year old Michelin 275/80R-22.5 tires on my coach. I talked with a local supplier that handled both tires. The guy I spoke with thought that the Toyo would be a better ride and he suggested the M122 295/75R-22.5's. He said the Hankook was also a good tire and he would be glad to supply me with either of them. He quoted me a price and gave me the installation date of Thursday, February 3rd. A couple of days ago the supplier called me and told me that he could get me the M147's for the same price as the M122's. The M122's are an all position tire and the M147's are a steer tire suited for over the road and regional applications. They are also suitable for drive and trailer.What would you do? Go with the M147's or do something else?

This would also be an excellent time to install "Dually Valve Stems" thereby reducing the need for valve stem extensions. Google "Dually Valve stems" or search this site.

They can't confirm the Michelin FMCA deal. I put on the Toyo M122s and have really been pleased with the ride over the previous Michelins.

I called a few Michelin dealers near me. I mentioned the FMCA/Michelin deal. One dealer said, "we don't do that" and another said the cost is $494 per tire. I asked if that was after the discount and the dealer said yes, that's the motorhome pricing. I said, the program is supposed to offer a 55% discount. So you are telling me the MSRP on the tire is $1097 per tire. He said $494 per tires is the price.I thanked him for his time and hung up the phone and was glad that I made the decision to get the Toyo's.

I just find it hard to believe Michelin is going to discount tires by that much.
