Tire cost

We just had new steer tires installed today on our coach prior to delivery. We went with Michelins for a total of $2800. Is that reasonable?

motorhometires.com shows $2688.00 I'd say that is a fair price

I think Good Sam and FMCA offer discounts. You definitely didn't over pay. And the peace of mind you'll have with new steers is worth it.

$2,800 for two tires? Seems high even for Michelins.

6 Toyo M144s 295/80 22.5 are $3,600 for my coach.

I agree, $2,800 seams very high. We had 6 new tires installed on our coach for $2,600 last September.

Simple tire will give you a ball bark price.

I had 6 Toyo's installed for a about $3k, so I guess I don't understand how 2 tires could be 2800

That's really high! I would have expected the total, including mounting, to be around $2000, but it's been a while since I bought tires!

I did some price checking a while back, including with the FMCA discount, and while I don't recall the exact numbers, my recollection is that Michelins are about 40% more than the same size/weight rating in Toyo tires. So if you want Michelin, you pay for the “luxury” of the brand. They might last longer, but RV tires usually time out anyway, and many Toyo owners say the ride is better than it was with the OE Michelins. But given all that, $2800 is not over the top for two Michelins on a 44’ DS.

Personally I think $2800 for 2 tires is a lot. But with all the Price gauging going on during the pandemic, it doesn't surprise me. So I guess you paid the "Going" current price.
As for your toad: I see you're new here, and you got me scratching my head.....are you planning on Flat towing a MB SL 550? IF you are, I would double ck and triple ck your manual and your Warranty. MB recommends that you DO NOT flat tow their cars, and in case of an emergency, no more than 30 miles.

I replaced my steering tires with Michelin’s for under 1700 less than six months ago. I will let you be the judge on if your deal was reasonable.
