I just put 2 new steer tires on. 11R24.5 Firestone FS590's. They ran about $376 each. I had the rims blasted and painted for $45 each,
That sounds like a pretty good price for FS590s. That price is about $20 or $30 more per tire than I paid in 2006 for the same tires. We all know tire prices have gone nowhere but up since 2006. Where did you get these if I may ask? I'll need to get my rims repainted when I need tires in a few more years.
My backyard gets little sun so tires on my rarely used vehicles last a long time. My trailer tires were new in 2001. No cracks yet. I had them inspected at a tire shop last year and they said no reason to replace them yet.
