OK...I finally received an answer to my question...but I had to go to Michelin to get the correct answer. I'm not sure why this is such a secret but even the dealer says he doesn't know what WIT member prices are. So I feel like I am revealing classified information here...but here goes. According to my dealer (that sounds a bit strange) he receives his cost plus 5% per tire. He says he has no idea what WIT Club members actually pay because his invoice will list retail price. The receipt WIT Club members receive from WIT will be the first time the actual price is seen. FMCA shows a pricing page on their web page with pricing for each tire. The dealer told me he can see that so he assumed that is what FMCA members are paying. While the FMCA price list is online, but the WIT Club instructions say to ask the dealer for WIT Club price estimates. But as I've mentioned the dealer had no clue so i had to call the WIT Club back to ask them for an estimate. They sent me the requested price list. Both club price lists supposedly show basic per tire price plus FET. For my tire the WIT price was $27/per tire more than the FMCA price. But I called Michelin to confirm what I was seeing was accurate. Michelin gave me the base price per tire without FET....
Bottomline...both programs base prices are exactly the same. Not sure why the prices plus FET were so different...but according to Michelin...the discount price for my tire anyway is the exact same for each program.
Sorry for the lengthy reply...
