Need New Michelin Tires in San Jose

I live in San Jose, CA and need new Michelins on my Diplomat. 295/80. Looking at the Michelin site, I do not see any local dealers for RV tires. Does anyone have a recommendation for a dealer near San Jose?

When I replaced my tires on my 2002 Endeavor, I used Bruce's Tires in Fremont. This was before the MI discount, so not sure if they can help you there or not. It took a couple days to get the tires, so I knew they were fresh.
They do have a location in San Jose, but I'm not sure if they can handle an RV.

Phone: (408) 295-1742
The Fremont store does all our corporate truck and big rig tire work, so I knew they could handle larger rigs.

Fremont, CA 94539
Phone: (510) 651-4701

Good guys and good work.
Good luck.
Mike

If you are a member of FMCA or Monaco International, they both have a National account pricing deal with Michelin. You call them and they will give you the names of suitable Dealers in your area. Generally you are better off using a truck tire dealer. The only RV specific tires in 295/80 sizing are the Goodyear G670 and the Michelin XRV. Both have had issues. The Michelin tire most used is the XZA2 Energy.

The Michelins are back ordered until February 2013, so I will make a run at this then. We will be in Tucson in February and there appears to be a lot of Michelin dealers there.

MikeyG, Need Michelin RV tires replaced. What is the largest/taller/bigger tire that I can install on my 2002 HR Endeavor. Looking for a smoother ride. Some friends have gone on to a bigger tire but I'm concerned about the tires hitting the body when cornering and bottoming out. Any advice? Thanks Capt. Dave

Luke, check on Tucson's sales tax and disposal fees, it may be a fair amount compared to the Republic of California.

Dave:
I no longer have the Endeavor, but as I recall, I replaced them with the same size as the OEM Goodyears. Others in the group may be able to respond to larger tires better than I.
Best of luck.
Mike
