Where to buy tires?? Eastern PA

I've spent countless amount of time online researching tires. I've got the 235/80r22.5 from Michelin on my RV and they need replaced ASAP.

I've decided on Toyo or Sumitomo in 245/75r22.5

I have called everyone in a 30 mile radius of my home. Only two dealers will even do RV tires (RV shops) and all the tires stores have turned me down. Best pricing so far is for Michelin's like I currently have at $560 per tire installed!

Any suggestions on who to call, where to look and how to find the best deal?

Never expected getting tires to be such a frustration process

I would recommend this company. And consider going to/joining
Family Motor Coach Assn (FMCA) they have a good discount
program on Michelins.

No sure how far southeast you are in PA but these guys are right over the border from Easton, PA.

They know truck and RV tires and gave me a great deal.

I had Michelin XZE's on there and replaced them with XZE2's.

Depends upon how much work you want to do vs how much money you want to save.

I buy Michellin's at Costco, then I either pay a guy who has a truck at the campground I am at this week $20 to pick them up or barter a steak dinner and some beers. We pick them up and I go to a Semi service center and have them installed. If my old skins are good and just aged out I usually trade them the skins for installation since my tires are a common Semi size.

On my last three tire changes (different coaches each time) I have bartered out installation and never paid a dime for it. Plus Costco has always been cheaper than FMCA. The only hassle is picking up the tires at Costco and transporting them to the service center, but I just figure that saving $200 - $400 is worth it.

The best deal I found was at Costco even better than the FMCA deal but you have to find an installer
