Early this morning my front right tire popped on the way to work. I just received a call and was told the front right tire will cost $300 dollars. That seems a bit high. My car is a 2011 f sport and has the stock tires from when I purchased.
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds high but, in any event, I would be cautious of having one out of the four tires differing in manufacturer and model number just to save a few buckeroos.
He would have to replace the pair anyways, as 2 year's worth of wear on the other side would affect high speed tracking on the highway if he just replaced one. He is better off buying 2 new tires from Tirerack for the same price as one crappy tire from the dealer.
Switch your front two to Hankook Ventus V12 and then when the rears are ready to be changed do the same, the Dunlops are the cheaper of the two OEM applications with the bridgestones being the "better" option. If money is not an issue Michellin Pilot Sports or Super Sports are awesome.
Never get your tires at the dealership....they dont make the tires and there is no magic to mounting them even if you went to a firestone it would be cheaper. Also at firestone they sell lifetime allignment, I always pick that up on my new cars its around $150 in my area....well worth it IMO.
