FMCA offers Michelin tires to members at the "fleet" price which results in a savings of ~$80-100/per tire. It more than pays for the membership dues.

If you are a Costco or Sam's Club member, they can special order Michelins in your size. I used Sam's and then had a local truck service center do the install and computer balancing. Saved about $60.00 a tire over what I could find here locally and the tires came in with two month old DOT dates.

X2 on Costco - they have beat FMCA trie pricing each time I have tried. The only hitch is you usually need to pick up the tires there and take them to a truck stop to put them on. However if your old skins are in good shape most truck stops will trade you installation for your old tires.

I'd have to rent a truck to transport six 22.5" tires. That's not worth it IMHO

Mborow......That tore size was used by Monaco until 2005 on their Diplomats and a little later on the Knight and Cayman. It's not a popular size, but Hankook sells one in that size. I had nothing but issues with the Goodyears and when I recently replaced the two front tires on my Diplomat, I bought the Hankook. They rode great, handled great and are reasonably priced. I bought one as a spare last August and it was $350.00 OTD. I bought 2 fronts about 18 months ago and they were $800.00 installed OTD.

I know people like the FMCA program, Costco and other places with fixed prices/programs, but I find I always get a better deal by shopping around. Most people don't like to haggle so they're happy with the programs that have fixed pricing.

I've never rented a truck. There are more than enough people who have trucks around campgrounds that would love to help you out. The last time I bought a steak dinner and a few beers for the gentleman who helped us. He was ecstatic and told me anytime I needed anything hauled to give him a holler.

Subtracting the cost of the steak dinner I saved over $300 so it was plenty worth it, IMHO, again YMMV.

I bought Toyo's from Les Schwab, saved $1300 over Michelin's FMCA price.

Second that 6 tires out the door $2500. Probably 1500+ less than Michelin.

Mborow I am looking for the same tires now myself. Here it what I have found so far.
Bridgestone R-250 ed 6 tires mounted $4300
Firestone FS-560 $2700
Hancock AH-12 $3000
Michelin XZA2 through FMCA $3410
Didn't get any other prices cause I think the Michelin deal was to hard to pass up.

Google Online Tires and you will find all brands listed with great prices and low shipping. I purchased 5 tires for my trailer and they we 1/2 the price of Camping World or the local Goodyear dealer. Try RecStuff for wheels. You will pay significantly less.
