I put a set of Bridgestone Duravis r500 on mine 2 years ago. They have been great. Run very cool and are wearing great. They are considered a heavy duty tire and so far I am very pleased with them.

Was 'almost' considering taking the inside tires and putting them on the front (they look that good!) but...seeing all the comments on here about DOM and blow outs I thought better of it. (Most of you are say..DUH!)

So anywho...the search goes on, and yes, I'm 'considering' joining the FMCA club just for the tire discounts, but again, I wish I could 'know' how much that will save me specifically on my sized tires so I can make an educated decision without having to actually join 1st.

Does anyone know? Can I look on their site (I did) and get a quote before I actually join? I've already joined two clubs due to the RV...and since it's winter..not really wanting to shell out more money if I don't have to.

The FMCA Michelin tire program contains this statement: "The Michelin Advantage Program does not guarantee the lowest price, as local dealers may be able to provide local customers with better prices."
The FMCA forums offers some actual tire program pricing for the questions asked there.
