Damn... truck tires are 'spensive

Four new Michelin X-Radial LTs $585 (mounted, balanced, old tires disposed of) from Costco mind you... and those are the DISCOUNT Michelins (also sold as the LTX in other stores. It's the same tire).

Retail on them is even more ridiculous. $185 each, plus mounting, balancing, tax, and fees. Works out to about $820 plus tax.

Thankfully Costco had a $60 discount coupon, which cut it down to $525... but still, damn.

If I'd wanted to actually go with "high end" tires, retail would have been over $1200...

When exactly did truck tires get so damn expensive?
