I already negotiated sales price down a lot so i don't think they'll come off the $580.
Go with the Michelin LTX M/S2's, they're a much better tire than the Latitude Tour's. I had the Latitude Tour HP's on my 2010 and they wore pretty fast. The MS/2's are also much better in the snow and ice as well as lasting a lot longer. Look up cost on http://www.tirerack.com
You should only have to pay the difference. If they really want your business, they will throw them in at no cost.
