Costco has the best price I found. Les Schwab refused to mount them for me, but wanted several hundred more per tire plus mounting if I had purchased them there! I got them mounted at another independent tire dealer. dick

Bought Michelin XZA2 at Superior tire in Eugene Oregon. Less than 2 hours in and out, Very good service. We did not balance the drive tires as we were told they never have had any issues with Michelin balance in that position. The tires are a 0513 date code so I guess you start the useful period from the date of install instead of the production date. Both of us agree the ride quality is superior compared to our previous Good Year G670. Looks like good decision. Used the FMCA program, painless transaction.

Just curious, what kind of prices did you find while shopping?

I decided to do the FMCA program and our total cost was $3554 for six tires, balance on the steers and new short valve stems so they face out on the outside dual, much easier to do the air.

I have one of those little devices for checking tire thread depth so checked them today.
LF 3/32
RF 6/32
LRO 4/32
LRI 4/32
RRI 3/32
RRO 6/32

Both front tires are rivering and I don't care for that. I had the front tires moved to rear inners a couple of years ago because they were rivering. These are Goodyear R670s 265/75R 22.5 and have over 65000 miles. Winter coming on and it might be better to have more tire thread on the ground. Henderson's in Grants Pass checked alignment in May this and they felt the alignment was good. Rivering appears to be an issue with the 670's.

The FMCA website lists FCMA Michelin's 255/80R 22.5's as $469.56 plus tax and mounting. Do you guys think it would be worth it to check out Toyo's or Hankook? I don't plan on getting Goodyear's again because of the rivering. Any thoughts appreciated.

Bob,
Two years ago in washington I paid $463 a tire. I got mine at Pacific Tire about 25 miles from Whidbey, but Pacific Tire has dealers all over the place out there. My experience with this particular dearer was excellent.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Thanks Rich & Wayne. I looked up telephone numbers, found Oregon locations for them and will call them tomorrow.

The FMCA website recommends you check with tire dealers pricing, sometimes they offer a better price than the FMCA pricing.

After a few phone calls I'm going to business with Tehama Tire in Grants Pass. The places you mention are in Eugene and that would be 150 miles each way and the fuel cost would add to the price of the tires. Individual tire cost is $469.56 plus $18.99 FET and 65.50 for mount, balance & new valve stems. Works out to $3264.30 through the FMCA program. Normal cost at Tehama tires would be $688.98 - $4133.88. If my calculator is correct FMCA saves $869.58.

I have never had a problem with Michelin and after having many brands in the last 60 years would buy nothing else given a choice.

CostCo has them and that is where I mostly go. If not a member, try:
