...dealer firmly stated that he couldn't guarantee anything concerning the age of the "new" (I use that reference advisedly when talking about rv tires).
Do any of you out there know of a way to get the newest Michelin XRV tires possible and where?
I contacted our Michelin dealer here in Spokane last week and found the he had several 275/80 R2.5 XZA3's in stock and had an order of 100 more coming next week.
He said that he is the supplier for a large local trucking company that goes through a lot of that model of tire, so he gets a lot of them and they have a very current mfg date.
So, I guess that's the key... one needs to find a Michelin dealer that deals in large quantities of truck tires.
I mention the XZA's because that was what I was looking for, but I found XRV's also. The XRV's were at another dealer and had a mfg date of 47th week of 2009.
