Snider Tires

It's time for me to buy new tires, Michelin 235/80 R22.5 XRV. I am thinking of calling Snider Tires, they seem to have a number of locations in the southeast. Has anyone ever dealt with them and if so how were they? What would be a good price I should expect to pay? My old tires only have 14,000 miles on them (replacing them due to age, 2004) should I try to trade them for the mounting, bal and steams? What is a born on date that is exceptable? Anything ealse I need to know or check on? Thanks in advance for any help.

Last Oct I replaced all 6 of my tires with Michelin at Snyder in Houston. I asked about a trade in. Lots of tread but little over 5 years old. I had hopes of getting maybe $25 or $50 each. The guy was very sorry to tell me he could only give me $75 per tire. I tried to not show how happy I was. They even did the Michelin discount thing through FMCA. I waited in the comfort of my coach while they were replaced in only about 3 hours.

I had a good experience with them. Good luck

Whether you can get a trade-in depends on the size - some sizes are used only on RVs and have little or no value on the used market for truck tires.

If you are an FMCA member, check into their Michelin Fleet Discount Program - you could save a bundle. Enough to pay for an FMCA membership if you don't already have one. Costco and Sams Club also can get you good prices on Michelins.

Snider's is an ok place to do business. So is Callaghan Tire and GCR Tire in Florida & southeast.

I don't think it is common on commercial vehicles. Michelin seems to be the only major manufacturer of it, and that implies it is not a big seller nationally. It's a fairly small tire as such things go. Medium and heavy trucks and semi trailers use larger sizes, e.g. 11R22.5.

So are you saying Goodyear and Bridgestone don't make that size?

Neither GY nor Bridgestone lists them among their RV tires. Maybe they have them in some other product line, but I haven't seen or heard of it.

Goodyear offers the 245/75R22.5 as a substitute for the 235/80. It works out to the same circumference, but its a bit wider and you would need to check clearance in the front wheel wells and between the duals.

Nope, but it will be worth your while to join the FMCA to qualify for fleet pricing discount.

I just checked last years Michelin fleet price and it was $357.10 + FET and local taxes/fees,but I've been told that tire prices have increased dramatically since last summer. Online I see prices listed in the $460-$480 range, but that would be without taxes and shipping.
