A bit high on the price but honestly thats what I was quoted when I got a nail in one of tires leaving my warehouse. Like everyone else said here, TireRack has cheaper prices for good quality tires but ofcorse that means you have to wait a few days to get the order.

From what I heard, Vertus V12 tread life is not that good. Continental DW and Ponteza 760 sport have better wear. I believe either will be much better than stock of 1/2 the price.

If that includes the cost of mounting, balancing, tire disposal, tax, etc, it sounds about right to me.

If it's the cost of the tire alone, then yeah, too high.

I'm assuming you called the STEALERSHIP? Locals can get you decent tires for half that...
