Another place in Arlington was $679.99 for the same tire. Cheapest price quoted for Michelins was $752.55. How does that compare?
The plan will bill you for the tires and th shop will bill you for the services.
Give me your tire size and I will PM you.

She'll usually take a 20-30 minute nap around 4 PM if she's been outside playing. Yesterday was sunny and warm here and she played outside for hours. She napped for almost an hour. It's hard work to hunt for bugs. Thankfully they get consumed, not brought home.

She spotted a lizard next to the RV and had to threaten it. Poor thing was too cold to move on his own. I relocated him to a sunny spot in the flower bed. A few minutes of warming and he was off.

But, R U and RVM?

Are there things you do not have and do not need?
Is the Journey your Destination.
Provide an example of the first and a declaration of the second, and you can be an RVM!

Regarding tires, I have purchase tires Three times in the last few years. First time was in Washington State at Pacific Tire, Mount Vernon, 6/22/10 after a blowout, and the tires were $433 each, plus balancing and install and tax for a total of $1079. The FMCA Advantage Program was not in effect at the time.

Second time was Beale Tire in McAlester, OK, 5/17/12 . Found a shop that participated in the program. It has to be a shop that has a Michelin Fleet Account. That time cost me $441 each for a total of $1012 with all the other stuff.

Third time was here locally at LaPorte Tire Center, LaPorte, TX. I cannot find my receipt on those but it was also around the $1000 mark including the extra stuff.

So, shop around for sure and make sure that the company is a Michelin National Account Dealer. Not all tire shops are National Account Dealers.. Three times now I have paid less that $500 a tire. When you are asking for a quote you are getting their retail cost and not the FMCA Advantage cost. I believe there is a way that you can get the price from FMCA once you have found a dealer. Been a while.

Information on the FMCA Michelin Advantage Program

Here are the typical prices using the program.

Prices subject to change without notice.

You may have to be a member of FMCA to see these links. Not sure.

Hmmmmmm I need 4 275/70R22.5. The GY were more expensive than the Michelins and the Michelins are more expensive than Hankooks. Finding good tires is basically a pain in the posterior.

Cheers !!!!
