Smile New Tires

Replaced the original Michelin 275/70R 22.5 (J) AZ1A tires on our 2005 KSDP. The tires had 51,355 miles on them and there was still plenty of tread left. However, being 10 years old (date code) there were numerous small cracks developing. Used the FMCA tire program for new Michelin AZ2A tires. The tires retailed for $603.79 ea and with the program they were $495.89 ea a saving of $107.90 per tire. With balancing, labor, new valve stems. FET, State Tax, County Tax, Environmental Recovery Tax, Tire Fee, and disposal fee. The installed price for 6 tires was $3,813.27. With the FMCA discount and the dealer discount we saved $806.40 by using the program.

I want to point out that the dealer only $126.00 to dismount and mount the six tires which was a real bargan.

Thanks for the info. Looks like you are good for another long run on new tires. And peace of mind, for about $ .87 per day, or $31.87 per month, or just $ 317.77 per year for the next 10 years. Not sure I have ever read of anyone running out of tread on their RV. Wish I had the time and money to try to wear out a set.

Just ran some the numbers on my coach for monthly expenses.
Tires, insurance, registration, taxes, inspection, costs me around $ 11 per day, just the sitting costs.
