RV Tires (FMCA/Michelin discount)…..

If you have been following along with my posts you might remember me mentioning, we need six new tires for our coach before traveling for the winter. 


Most of you RV’ers and FMCA members, probably know about a discount that is being offered if you buy Michelin tires.  In case you don’t here is their offer.


FMCA and Michelin are offering FMCA members a discount per tire. Discount applies to the tire only and doesn’t include service or disposal of the old tires.


The FMCA program is called Advantage and listed below is what you need to do, if you are looking to replace your tires:


~ call FMCA. They will ask you for your FMCA membership number, the size and the tread of the tire you want to buy. They will then quote you the discounted price of this specific tire.


*FMCA will give you an Advantage account number and a purchase order number, that you will then give to your tire dealer at the time of purchase.


~ Call your tire dealer.  Make sure your tire dealer is participating in this FMCA Advantage program with Michelin.


~ Call Michelin.  Give them a credit card number that you will use to purchase the tires. They will hold your credit card number for 30 days. If service is not completed within the 30 days you will need to contact Michelin again.


~ When you arrive at the tire dealership to have service done, you need to give them the Advantage Account number and a purchase order number.


Hubby called our local Tire Center of America (TCA) this morning, to inquire about our tire replacement and they told him about this FMCA/Michelin discount offer! Over the years they have been wonderful to work with.


Michelin phone number: 1.888.532.6435

FMCA phone number: 800.543.3622



Hubby works seven more days, then he will be retired for a second time; this time from working summers!

Then our fun begins, for the 2013 winter season: get ready to get out On the Big Road!

    1. Hi Barb! For your car you can try going out to Michelin.com and look under promotions. FMCA stands for Family Motor Coach Association; which is an organization for people that have RVs.

      We usually purchase tires for our car from Sam’s or WalMart; they will service them usually for free all across the country! A month ago we had a huge screw in one of our tires and Sam’s fixed the flat for free.

      Talk with you soon!

  1. That sounds like so much fun! The whole idea of RVing is so foreign to me, but it has a romantic appeal, and I would love to try it one day! 🙂

  2. Cubby, if you think you would like to try RV.ing, then you should! It is a lot of fun and a very nice way to see our beautiful country. You have your own bed, kitchen and “things” that your bring along. Too funny, so glad you think it is romantic, I guess it takes a great poet, such as yourself, to express that! It is a nice way to think about traveling, any kind of travel really – it does have a romantic appeal! We leave Colorado for the winter for 5 to 6 months, I am glad to go and I am glad to get back home! I enjoy your blog and your comments on mine!

    1. Gay, glad to be of service. 🙂
      We currently have Michelin and have been happy with them, so new Michelins will work for us!
      It’s a bummer when you need new tires!
