Help - FMCA Michelin 315/80R22.5 Price?

I am going to upgrade to 315/80R22.5 tires on my MH, over the current 11R22.5 for the increased load capacity (and therefore safety).

Can someone give me the FMCA Michelin price for 315/80R22.5 size? These are load range L or 20 ply rated. I can't seem to find the price without signing up and paying money first. I can get tires local and know the regular price, but not the FMCA price.

Just trying to figure out what tires to get vs pricing, and don't know the FMCA price for the Michelins now. Thanks, Terry

I'm going from memory as I looked at this size on the the FMCA site a couple of weeks ago. The site is currently being updated & pricing is unavailable. The price then was approx $610 plus FET and sales tax plus other dealer fees like mounting, balancing.

Just my luck, ask for the help and the site is down! That helps some with your estimate, guess i have to wait for an exact amount.

I do know that the FET, mounting, balancing, and sales tax are on top of the price. I just need the tire price so i can do some comparison and evaluation.

If you just want some more load capacity, go to 12R22.5's. Much less expensive than 315's. Even the 295/80R22.5 is a much higher load capacity than the 11R22.5. 7830 per tire (single) and 6940 (dual).

I'm running Continental 11R's on my rear axle - plenty of capacity for a 20k lb axle - but have 295/80R22.5 on the front where I need a much higher load rating.

My 11R22.5's are overloaded, I scaled the MH and front axle weight was 14,600. So it is obvious that the 11R's are not good, and I would rather have more margin. I'll look into the 12R22.5 or the 295's, but right now I know the 315's will give me good margin.

edit: upon checking, the 12R's or 295's are 7390 or 7830 lbs max (load range H), which does not leave any margin, I would be running at or near max. So my original choice for the load range L 315's seems the best, they are a little over 8000 when used on my 8.25 wheels. 9090 if used on 9-inch wide wheels. I am not worried about slightly accelerated wear due to the 8.25 width, I will age out before mileage out.

I will leave the 11R's on the back, with my twin screw rear and only 20,600 weight on the rear total, those tires are very safe range - about 40% of load capacity.

If you go with 315s, you will need 9" width wheel to get much capacity above the 295s. Michelin allows 315s on 8.25" wheels but down rates them pretty substantially.

With more checking, maybe the difference in load is not that much. The 295 at 7830 lbs is actually higher than 7610 lbs that I have found for the 315 on 8.25 wheel with some sources. Others were around 8000 lbs, but realistically 7830 would give me enough with some margin. Might just have to consider that size instead if I do not want to buy new wheels.

I appreciate the help and discussion. I know no matter what I am buying new tires, just need to decide which size and brand.
