Gary, FMCA has seemed to resolve the paperwork for the dealer. When you go through FMCA you give Michelin your credit card number - then when you go to the tire dealer you give them the first digit and the last four digits and that's it.



For everyone else, I have only priced these through one dealer because they also work closely with Josams in Orlando that will be doing the alignment and mounting and balancing the tires. BTW - Josams charges ~ 75 dollars / tire to mount and balance.



BTW, the dealer will give me an additional 50 dollars / tire for the old cores so for anyone getting tires this would be something to ask for if replacing tires.


Iím curious, I called Josams in Orlando a month ago about an alignment and also about replacing the steer tires and was told they do not install tires and referred me to McGee Tire? I have my alignment scheduled for April on our way north and Replace the steers the same day after it.... again, curious, is Josams now installing tires?

Actually it was Josams that suggested that they replace the tires. They did recommend McGee Tire for the purchase as they do not sell tires at Josams. McGee would deliver the tires to them and they would mount / balance them for around 75 each before they did the alignment.

Jim ,
I just went through the same thing with my 2017 Anthem. 22,000 mi and the front tires were showing odd wear patterns on the outside tread. I was going to replace them through FMCA. As my alignment was checked twice and everything was perfect I decided to get in touch with Michelin. I made arrangements to meet with the Michelin representative in my area who looked at the alignment test results and the tires. Michelin agreed to warranty both of the tires and I received the new X-Series for free, except labor balancing etc. I would definitely try this before springing for new tires.

Using the FMCA tire program last April I replaced my 4 drive axle tires with 315 80R 22.5 tires listed on the Michelin chart X Line Z product code #09807. They replaced 4 295 80R 22.5's that had 94,000 miles on them. Savings was well over $450 over what other tire dealers could do. After returning from Alaska I had to replace a steer tire that wore unevenly on the outside. Again, I went with the 315 80R 22.5 and saved over $100 over the next best quote I got on the same tire.

The process is simple. Go to the FMCA Tire Program web site (sign in) and pick the tire you want. The list and FMCA price will both be shown. Then call the 800 number listed and give them your credit card info and FMCA info. They will give you an approval just about immediately and your approval will be good for a purchase in the next 30 days. Your tire dealer will take your CC info and charge you mounting, balancing and any other fees they have, and you're done.

No tire dealer in my area could come close to FMCA pricing.

Canadian Prices

For your information, I just bought two Michelin Tires 315/80R22.5 Xline Energy Z, part #09807 at $CAN 780.78 thru the FQCC which is similar to FMCA in Quebec. This is roughly $ 585.00 in U.S. Dollars so I'm pretty sure there is better deal out there than $750.00.

I would also recommend that you check the manufacturer date code on your purchase to ensure youíre satisfied. Depending on installers frequency of business some tires have been known to stay on the shelf for years. I believe that info is also on FMCA or Michelin check list as an FYI.
