Just got a quote of $609.00 ea for the XRV 255 80R 22.5 under the advantage program. I see them for less on the internet shipped free to my tire company. Sound right? One supplier $561.00 ea. No advantage.

When I buy tires from my local small town tire shop, I ask what the manufacture dates are and they find out and tell me. They understand why I want to know and they understand that by making me happy, they make money. I could have saved a couple of money but it is not worth it to me.

I've been going to the same shop over the years using the advantage program with no complaints. Just curious. Getting tires tommorow.

Just used the program last week. The Michelin program price was $50 or so less per tire than the dealer that installed them could sell them for before he had to add taxes. His installation cost to me was the same whether he sold them or not. He had just got the tires in the week before so they were very new. I bought them.

Maybe could have saved a few bucks somewhere else, but i put $$ in savings every month just for RV maintenance and the tires were less that I had budgeted anyway.

I got a quote much like the OPs plus I'd have to pay a tire guy to put 'em on so the total cost woudl have approached 4000 for half a dozen of 'em

Went with Toyo's for 2300 or less out the driveway

NOW: What is the major difference? Turns out it's tread life. If you drive thousands of miles a month Toyos won't last as long.. But who ever "Wears out" tires on a Class A? I know I did not the treat on 10 year old tires looks darn near new... And that's too old for tires.. SO the TOYO's will last me every bit as long as my OEM Mitchlins. for just over half the price.

Need to consider the tire dates, disposal fee, mounting and balancing fees, etc. I looked at the FMCA program but decided to buy locally. I think the prices were fairly close.

Does the $561.00 include FET?

The FMCA program might or might not be the cheapest way to buy tires either Michelin,Continental,or Hankook, which is stated on the website.

It should be noted that FMCA receives a few dollars from those companies when you purchase tires using the program which helps to keep your dues low

You need to negotiate the purchase of your old tire. The service will sell them to farmers for field equipment.
