I put a set of Bridgestone Duravis r500 on mine 2 years ago. They have been great. Run very cool and are wearing great. They are considered a heavy duty tire and so far I am very pleased with them.

Was 'almost' considering taking the inside tires and putting them on the front (they look that good!) but...seeing all the comments on here about DOM and blow outs I thought better of it. (Most of you are say..DUH!)

So anywho...the search goes on, and yes, I'm 'considering' joining the FMCA club just for the tire discounts, but again, I wish I could 'know' how much that will save me specifically on my sized tires so I can make an educated decision without having to actually join 1st.

Does anyone know? Can I look on their site (I did) and get a quote before I actually join? I've already joined two clubs due to the RV...and since it's winter..not really wanting to shell out more money if I don't have to.

The FMCA Michelin tire program contains this statement: "The Michelin Advantage Program does not guarantee the lowest price, as local dealers may be able to provide local customers with better prices."
The FMCA forums offers some actual tire program pricing for the questions asked there.

I know this thread is VERY old, but I just felt like I needed to finish the post. I hate starting something and then not finishing it...although my DW might have other comments to the contrary....

So...back in 4/25/2014 I purchased 6 new Hercules H-901 14 Ply tires from Perfection Tire here in Spokane, WA for $1587.26 out the door after a TON of research and having to ask Perfection to go back and VERIFY their DOM on the tires. They said it was 1811 which would be 18th week of 2011 and these tires werenít made until 48th week in 2013. *After they looked again, that wasn't the date and for some reason I didn't capture that info and put it in my spreadsheet where I got all the above info. *At any rate, I verified the tires had a good date before they put them on. *They did an okay job but they are NOT setup for RVís so I probably will not have them do anything more.*So far I love the tires, it seems to steer better and corner better.

(Most of the above was written and put into my RV Repair Spreadsheet back on that date.)

So now, today (5/2/2018) I wanted to say...I STILL love these tires (although now I see they have H-902's out with even higher rated capacity!).

We've put about 14K miles on them and they still look brand new and I've not had any issues. I did have issues with Perfection Tire as they left the rubber valve stems in them so I had to have that fixed by them. They did admit that was an oversight on their part so they didn't charge me.

So yeah..that's about it. Just wanted to finish this thread off. BOOM! Done.
