Michelin 295/80R22.5 /16 XZE2 Energy

Just priced out Michelin 295/80R22.5 /16 XZE2 Energy tires today, @ $872.24 - FET $40.92. (Date code 3-14) he said, do not have on hand but that is what they have been getting in last week.

Does anyone know what the current FMCA price would be?

I know that I would have to pay dealer for the cost below:
The dismount & mount, Spin Balance, Wheel switch ) Disposal cost, & metal valve stem rebuild- Grommet & Core. $82.25 each.

I put my old used tires on craigs list and sold to a trucker for trailer tires for 70.00. He thought he got a deal. Obviously not over the road trucker.

Same here. I have sold three sets of my old tires via craigslist. Usually get $50-100 each tire, condition depending. Folks put them on work trucks, trailers, and the like.

I've had some tires in now, and due to some medical scheduling conflicts, have asked the dealer to confirm the dates that came in. (That by itself, my asking them to ask the warehouse to send in 'young born on dates' was a interesting conversation. As 'warehouse tires don't age', it's instal date that matters - was how the conversation went. Well, it does to me, and clearly told the gent that the aged matter to me.)

3/14 date? I'd say no thanks. Or if it was an emergency and I had to have them, I'd work very hard on a 15-20% discount.

Good luck on your tires!

Less than 60 days ago I bought 2 315/80R 22.5's through the Michelin program and my cost was $ 654.83 each. Mounting, balancing and other services were a separate charge by my dealer

You can go to the FMCA website and follow Michelin tire program to see the current prices. I bought mine in Sept for the same price as previous poster. I paid Michelin per invoice, they paid the dealer for his part. Seamless and very easy. Date code on tires were June 2015.

Well the dealer told me that the warranty starts with the date code not install date. Yes I will not take the tires with a 3/14 date. Never thought about craigslist.

Where did you get them from? I'm going to need 4 of them for the steer and tag along with 4 315/80's for the drive axle.

Do you have the 315/80 on 9" rims? I would like to put them on the front, but I have 8.25" rim.

Mr D. Hitchens Tire in Milford DE. Might be a bit of a trip for you. They're hard to find but these guys had a pair of fresh ones to me in less than 4 days.

C&SL, Yep, we went for the 9" rims too, but these are bought through the tire dealer. I'm on my first trip with the new setup and am very impressed with the ride we're getting. We're running the 315's at 110 PSI and had been pushing the 295's at 120. Maybe it has something to do with the wider tire on a wider rim, but DW and I both commented on how much better the ride feels with the new shoes.

That would mean those tires are already 1/2 "aged out" and only safe to use for another 3-4 years.
(However since a lot of Michelins sidewall crack at 3-1/2 years of age those tires may need to be replaced in only 6 months).

"...However since a lot of Michelins sidewall crack at 3-1/2 [I]years of age..."

Mel,

Where did you get this "FACT"? How many instances are you citing? Did you conduct a pole, or did you take a scientific survey? Where did you get the objective data to make such a statement?

Or did you just state this "fact" because of your own experience; which you've told us about over and over?

Okay, I'll make a statement that I believe is more accurate than yours; " A lot of Michelins DO NOT sidewall crack and 3 1/2 years, or 5, 6, or 7 years, or ever.".

Misleading statements that cannot be verified by FACTS help no one here.

Cheers!

I do agree that a lot of Michelin tires do not side wall crack.

However because of the "fact" that 100% of the Michelin tires I bought DID CRACK I can say that "a lot DO"...(6 cracked Michelin tire where 6 too many for me).
That IMO is a "fact" that anyone considering Michelin tires should be aware of when shopping for tires.

BTW, when you buy tires of any brand you pays your money and you takes your chances
That IMO is a another "fact" that anyone considering any brand of tire should be aware of when shopping for tires.
