RV News:~New Tires for The Rambling Rose~

New tires!

Monday, we stopped by the Loveland TCI Tire Center to order new tires for our coach. We needed six, size: 11 r 22.5, Model XZA3 (H) tread tires. It was after lunch and the service manager stated: 


“Why don’t you go get your coach and bring it in now and we will begin installing your new tires; we have the tires you need in our warehouse.” 

We asked him what the manufacture dates were on the tires and he said: “ lets go take a look.” So we walked with him into the warehouse to check the dates on the tires. Great, recent dates, good to go! We appreciated the fact that he let us go with him to check the dates.

We left TCI and drove over to pick up our coach, which is stored in an RV storage facility less than a mile away. It does not get any more convenient then that! 

The Rambling Rose spend Monday night indoors and we picked her up after lunch Tuesday with her new treads!

The partnership between FMCA, Michelin and TCI Tire Center and the process offering FMCA members a discount price on tires, went smoothly. The only item TCI needed, from us at the time of tire installation, was our FMCA number. We were given a TCI bill for tire installation and told that Michelin will bill us for the tires.

This morning, I received an email from Michelin stating that our final invoice was attached and our credit card would be charged. Very convenient! It sure feels good to have new tires on the coach. Safety always comes first! 

The next couple of weeks will be a busy time for us as we begin getting ready to head south for the winter.
