order from their servicing DC within the Michelin B2B portal. (see Costco Training Manual for more
detail) If the tire in unavailable via Bib Express or their servicing DC through Bib Express,
associates should special order tires utilizing the same process they have in the past. (phone)

contact Michelin for Special Order availability.
