FMCA Member Benefits and Services


 


Continental Tire Program

 

FMCA is excited to be able to give our members even more choices when it comes to equipping their motorhome with tires. Below is a step-by-step how-to on purchasing tires through the Continental Choice Program:

  • Get the specifications for the tires you need to have replaced. At this point, the program covers only motorhome tires.

    Use the specifications to find out which Continental tire is a match. You can do this by calling Continental (704-583-8889) or by using the pricing tool found below. This tool is extremely helpful and will give you pricing for every single tire that matches your search.
  • Find a local Continental dealer who can do the install, and set up an appointment.

    Also let the dealer know which tire you are looking for. That way, you can be sure the dealer will have the tires in stock and ready for your appointment. You can find a list of dealers at www.continental-truck.com/truck. From that page, select Dealer Locator in the top right corner.
  • When you go to the dealer, show them your FMCA membership card. You will pay the dealer directly for the tires and installation.

    Keep in mind that Continental quotes only the tire price and federal taxes. Any mounting, balancing, or other services the installer offers will be at an additional charge. We cannot quote those fees up front.


Michelin Advantage Program

Follow these instructions to locate a commercial Michelin RV tire dealer and claim your exclusive FMCA-member tire discount on eligible Michelin and BF Goodrich tires.

 

Step 1:  Look at the tires to be replaced and get the tire size.

Then use the tool below to get available tire pricing in the size you need.

 

Step 2. Find your nearest commercial Michelin Advantage RV tire dealer.

Go to www.michelinrvtires.com and enter your zip code in the dealer locator. The dealers will be listed in the order closest to your location. Select the dealer that best suits your tire needs. NOTE: To purchase Michelin or BF Goodrich tires for your light truck or passenger car, you must use an authorized commercial Michelin dealer that sells all three types of tires: commercial truck, light truck, and passenger car AND that accepts the Michelin Advantage Program.

 

Step 3. Contact the dealer to determine they have the tire that you want.

When you contact the Dealer to determine the they have the tire you need for your RV, Passenger Car or Light Truck, make sure you ask for the five-digit MSPN number for the tire you are purchasing. And verify that you have the proper size tire for your vehicle.

NOTE: All road tires with a maximum load capacity greater than 3500 pounds are subject to an F.E.T., or Federal Excise Tax. Generally this applies to medium truck tires and up. The F.E.T. is listed separately on the price lists above.

 

Step 4. Schedule the installation with your dealer.

Contact the dealer to check on the availability of the specific tire that you require. Make sure to confirm that they participate in the Michelin Advantage Program. Tell the dealer you will be purchasing your tires through the Family Motor Coach Association’s advantage account. FMCA's Michelin Advantage account number, or ship-to number, is 1326516. You will need to provide this number to the dealer. You must also provide your e-mail address. Your FMCA membership number will act as your purchase order number.

 

Step 5. Register your credit card with Michelin.

While you are obtaining your tires through a Michelin dealer, you will actually be charged by Michelin corporate and will need to pre-register your credit card with them. Michelin accepts Visa, MasterCard and American Express cards only.

To pre-register your card, contact the Michelin Advantage Program at (888) 532-6435 Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time and select option 1 from their menu. To register your card afterhours, call Michelin at (800) 847-9855. Your card information will remain on file for 30 days and will be set up for one-time use only. If your tire transaction has not been completed within 30 days, you will need to re-register your card.

If you make additional purchases in the future, you will need to call and preregister your card again at that time.

 

Step 6. Complete the purchase.

After the tires have been installed, you will need to provide the dealer with your VISA, MasterCard or American Express credit card information to complete the transaction at the servicing dealership.

This information must match the card information you registered with Michelin corporate. The tires will be billed to your card by Michelin. Most dealers will charge you separately for installation and labor. Any fees for mounting, balancing, and tire disposal are quoted by the servicing dealer and are not discounted by the program. The customer must also pay the state and local sales taxes that apply in the jurisdiction in which the tires are purchased. NOTE: Once you have arrived at the dealer for service, walk around the coach with the service writer or salesman. Note any existing damage to the coach and/or wheels. Verify the tires are the ones you asked for and that you are happy with the manufacture date of the tires.

For warranty issues, please contact Michelin Consumer Care at (800) 847-3435 or visit www.michelinrvtires.com.

You should receive your invoice within seven to ten business days from the date of purchase. The transaction is now complete. Enjoy your new tires!
