IMHO, you get what you pay for. Old Indian proverb!

The FMCA membership is now $99 per year; we got a free year when we purchased our MH and we're still trying it out. I've included a link to their website below as well as an attachment that shows their current member pricing on RV tires so you can judge for yourself. I haven't vetted this pricing against what's out on the street, so please check it. They don't guarantee the best price, just that you don't pay an inflated price when having a tire replaced on the roadside. Still probably worth it, though. FMCA is for motor coach and motorhome owners. Motorcoach articles, motor home blogs, motor coach advice and motorhome videos.

The tire discount is great but the free service that will return you and your family to your home base and return your MH and toad to your base is a fantastic deal. They pay for everything even will return your remains if you don't make it.

Oops! Sorry - I was looking at the fee for road assistance. My bad.

Do you order directly from FMCA? I went to camping world today and they quoted me $775/tire plus $57/tire to mount. Other local stores say they are back ordered. I have the Michelin XRV 255/80R22.5. Got a small crack on the outside wall on my front left. Click image for larger version

Don't buy them at camping world, they're a ripoff.

Dave I believe you get a preauthorized number from FMCA but I've never done it. I see you have a 2011 but what model is it. Have you had it weighed? Did you know that you can but larger tires on it. Do a search as there is lots if info about it.

I've called 15+ Michelin tire dealers and have been unable to find the 255/80R22.5. Without having to make any additional modifications do you all recommend any other tires for my 2011 Berkshire bh390? Thanks!

Disregard my previous post. I just found the tires on simpletire.com. Paid $543/tire which is much better than the $775/tire from Camping World. Appreciate all the responses on this and as always I learn something new everyday on the site.

Paid $503 pe tire, 255/80R 22.5 XRV on the FMCA program, but you need to add the taxes, mountng, balance etc to the bill. Took almost 6 weeks for the dealer to get them in.
