MT, OR, Where to buy tires

I am taking a trip north this summer. I would like to replace my tires in a state that doesn't charge sales tax and save a few bucks. Does anyone have a recommendation for either Oregon or Montana? I would be using the FMCA program. Need a 305/70R22.5 to put on my Motorhome. Thanks

Send a message via ICQ to Fred and Bonnie
Call and find out who participates in the FMCA program, that will dictate your dealer.

I would say that there are more rv tires sold in OR than MT. You probably would have better luck finding fresher tires of your size in OR. I can recommend Superior Tire Service :: WA & OR Tires & Auto Repair Shops in OR. I used the one in Eugene

I have good luck with my local Les Schwab but I know the owner. They are not the cheapest and service varies from store to store. Also, I don't let them try to sell me their house brand trailer tires, they're junk, I stick with Maxxis. I do watch their service guys while they're torquing lug nuts.

I got mine through Henderson's Line up in Grants Pass. They don't sell the tires but work closely with a company that participates in the FMCA program. If you call them they'll give you the name of the tire company, the tire company will deliver the tires to Henderson's and Henderson's will mount and balance. Henderson's also has a couple of electric connections outside the shop and will give you power if you need to overnight.

x2 for Les Schwab. We've been customers for 30 years or more at various Schwab stores in Western WA. We've always bought Toyo tires and have them on our Georgetown and our Kia Sedona.

The GT had elderly (9 years old) OEM Goodyears on it when we bought it. One of the first things we did, after getting it home the 40 miles from the seller, was get to Schwab's for a new set. Without me even asking, the store manager went looking for the newest tires he could find in the warehouse and he got me a set that were only 6 weeks old.

We never had a bad experience with any of the Schwab stores and many go above and beyond "typical" service.

x3 for Les Schwab. Go to Les Schwab Tires in Junction City, Oregon. They specialize in RVs and are just north of Eugene on Highway 99.

Wyatts Tire Service in Eugene,Or also participates in the Michelin FMCA Advantgage Plan. Just bought 6 new tires from them for our coach. Some of Michelins tire sizes are constrained now, so be sure and check availability at your dealer.

If price is important get a quote at costco, they almost always beat the FMCA price and will trounce Les Schwabs price. And since they special order tires their date codes are always good. The only hassle is you need to pick up the tires and take them to a local semi-truck shop that has a busy emergency roadside service center. I then trade them my old skins (they don't care about age only wear) for a free mount and balance. I have done this three times in Oregon when we lived just over the border in Washington.

If you don't have a way to transport the tires just stay in a campground and ask any of the retired 5th wheel owners if you can get them to pick up the tires and deliver them for you. One time I paid the guy $30 for his trouble and another I bought him a steak dinner and a few brews. These guys are almost always happy to help.
