    just bought 3 pairs for our household, but none for our newer Crew. Yep, tires are expensive.For example, a set of 4 Chinese Knock-Off for our 20 year old winter beater were $ 390 installed for 14". A set of 15's pushes the price up to 520 almost. In Canada, it is about 5 or 7 $ a tire now
    for a Tire Stewardship Program(covers the cost of disposal/recycling) and dealers are not allowed to waive the fee at all !!!!

    The high cost of oil and the fact that our currency is worth less than it used to be (thanks to the current administration authorizing the printing of more money) have a lot to do with the prices...

    Yep, I just put a set of Michelin on my yukon xl for the sum of $945. I told them that I was waiting for the $75 rebate to come. So, they did that discount while I was at the store to make the sale. So, original price was $975, after an alignment and the discount I paid $949.

    I just put on a new set as well. Toyo Open Country M/T's 33x12.5R22 they were $1900 for the set and $100 for mount and balance.... talk about expensive. Granted they are only one of two companies that make a 33" off road tire for a 22" rim so naturally they were more expensive than most other 33s.

    I bought a set of used, but just installed BFG All terrains from the junk yard for $80.00. I brought them home, cleaned them up and flipped them on Craigslist for $500.00. I was all set to go get a new set of meats for my truck when my buddy at the yard called me because they had fired him for selling them for so little. I had to do the right thing, so I went to the junk yard owner and he agreed to hire my buddy back if I would pay the difference of $400.00. I gave him the $320. My buddy got his job back and my tire fund got deflated instantly...

    Sometimes I HATE having a conscience!
