New Tires

We have a 2008 Alpine Coach 38' Mid door with 2 slides.

Investigating the FMCA Michelin Tire deal, seems like they have a good program - where my question is the installer. Checked with Redlands Truck and RV, and the price to install tires, weigh the unit using nitrogen and duallyvalve and front end alignment - is $1,375.00. Seems high - any other thoughts .

Nitrogen is is nothing more than a sales gimmic ! it offers more profit to the installer. As for the rest, sounds like a bigger rip off. Front allignment will run about 250, weighing the coach would be about 45. I would suggest looking for a more reasonable dealer not looking to make his house payment off you ! JMHO

That price I assume must include the 6 tires

The best deal in tires for anyone in the S Fla area is Value Tire in Hollywood Florida 954 987-1405, talk to Vinnie. You will swear you are in Brooklyn NY at the docks when you hear him speak, but he is a straight shooter with great prices.
