FMCA's Tire Program in Canada

It's time to start the process of getting quotes on replacing the tires on our 2014 Class "A".
We are members of FMCA, and specifically interested in hearing from others with experience in using FMCA's Tire Advantage Program here in Canada.
I have been a Michelin customer for years with all our vehicles, and will once again be focusing only on Michelins.
Was FMAC's process easy, and was there actually a financial benefit with the program?
I will also be looking for a qualified dealer in the S/W Ontario (Milton) area.
Thanks in advance for any input and suggestions.
Cheers

Jim,

Canít speak for FMCA in Canada but I did receive great pricing from MacMillan Tire in Kitchener on Michelin tires last summer. Give Tom a call for a quote, and no, I am not affiliated with MacMillan Tire.

Update:

I have received 2 quotes today, and there is a significant difference:

6 Tires 235/80/22.5

FMCA Tire Program Dealer $950/tire $5700 Total (tax inc.)

Local Tire Dealer $777/tire $4665 (tax inc.)

Difference: +$173/tire $1035 Total

I will NOT be using the FMCA Program and will NOT be renewing my annual FMCA Membership.

I will NOT be using the FMCA Program, and will also revisit the advantage of my annual FMCA Membership.

Some people like and use the FMCA tire program, but a person can usually find a dealer who will beat their "great Deal" I also used to get Michelins when I could, but saved over $300/tire going to Toyo last time. (295/80/22.5) Deeper tread and the ride is just as good. There was a time when Michelin was THE brand to have, but no longer for me.

Edit: The best price I found for the Michelin 235/80/22.5 was $665/tire plus tax. The Toyo 245/75/22.5 replacement (less than 1% difference in size) is $367 plus tax. I know you want only Michelin, but they come at a sizable premium with no better performance. These are prices in the US, but probably similar differences in Canada. Safe travels.
