Sam's Club & Costco 22.5 Tires

On 4/29/11 we did some tire shopping at our local(San Antonio) Sam's Club & Costco. This time we're purchasing 8 tires for a 2000 Signature. Its heaviest loaded axle is the steer, 13K #s.

I found that both have good prices, but availability is limited. Also, neither mounts, balances, or installs 22.5 tires. Costco sells Michelin, Bridgestone/Firestone. Sam's Club sells Michelin, Goodyear/Dunlop.

Costco: in stock @ warehouse
2 Michelin XZA2 295/80-22.5 H rated = $513ea + local tax.
6 Michelin XZA3 11R-22.5 G rated = $472ea + local tax.
2 Firestone FS507 11R-22.5 H rated = $432ea + local tax.
6 Firestone FS507 11R-22.5 G rated = $410ea + local tax.

Sam's Club: in stock @ warehouse
8 Dunlop SP160 11R-22.5 H rated = $330ea + local tax.
Availability unknown?
Dunlop SP160 295/75-22.5 G rated = $324ea
Michelin XZE2 11R-22.5 G rated = $476ea
Michelin XZA3 11R-22.5 G rated = $494ea
Michelin XZA2energy 295/80-22.5 H rated = $575ea
Michelin XZA3 275/80-22.5 G rated = $500ea, H rated = $517ea
Michelin XZE2 275/80-22.5 G rated = $472ea, H rated = $503ea
Goodyear G670 295/80-22.5 H rated = $630ea
Goodyear G287 11R-22.5 H rated = $653ea

We ended up buying from Sam's Club 8 Dunlop all position SP160 H rated 11R-22.5s. They both call a warehouse for availability. Sam's Club special orders them after you hand over your $$$.

good write up and thanks for the info. so a question from a newbie: You bought the tires from there, but who installed them, a local RV service center? And did you have to pick them up at sams and haul 22.5 tires to the service center? seems like that could be a pain.

I just replaced my 4 rear 295/80's with 11R22.5 Continental HSR2's. $460/tire mounted and balanced at a commercial tire shop near us in Ocala Fl (Callaghan Tire). The 11R has a bit less load capacity than the 295's, but still more than sufficient for my rear axle. Would have been at max on the front, though, so I would not choose to use them there. My front axle in 13,600 and I usually carry an actual 12,700 on them. I believe you will find the max load for the Dunlop 11R22.5 is around 6005 lbs (dual) and 6600 lbs (single).

You will need to carry more air pressure in the 11R's than you did on the 295/80's. Check the load inflation tables for specifics.

We brought them home with our little utility trailer.

We'll have a tire service come to our house.

We have the old tires for sale on craigslist.

We exchanged the 8 old tires for mounting and balancing the 8 new SP160 Dunlops. This is a $400 value around here. Regroovable tire cores are in short supply around here, so they have value.

All 8 new Dunlops have DOT dates of 1611.

This model Dunlop isn't made in a H rated 295, G only. The 6610 Lb single rating of the H rated 11Rs is more than adequate for the 13K Lb max rating of this 2000 Signature Caesar.

I weighed it on CAT scales recently. It was lightly loaded with me in the front seat, 1/2 tank of fresh water, 1/3 tank of diesel.
Steer axle: 11,860 Lbs
Drive axle: 17,980 Lbs
Tag axle: 6,540 Lbs
Total= 36,380 Lbs

We hope this helps

Checked out Sam's Club as well but when they couldn't install them I ended up at a Belle Tire Truck Center and just purchased them there. Their price was very very fair for the six I purchased. Not the size that the OP has posted but for six XRV 235/80R/22.5 -- $2602.00 out the door.

I bought my last set at goodyear. Borrowed a trailer and took them to my local tire store. They mounted and balanced for $20.00 a tire. Goodyear wanted $80.00 a tire. (outrageous) Larry's Tire's in Jonesbro, Ga. Mounted and balanced them.

Need more info:
Age of tires
Amount of cracking
Brand of tire
stuff like that

Filling in your profile would give us some of that info but not all.

Agree with Mr D

Also, curious why posted into a 3 year old thread?

Lot's of info on here about cracked sidewalls, especially Michelin. Personally have just over 6 year old GY's on rear of mine and no sign of cracking on sidewalls. Note your date code on tires to help - My rule of thumb at 6 years start thinking based on condition, >8 years got to go! I changed steers at 6.
