Red face Bought new tires, good deal?

I bought a used 2006 Monaco and on it there was still the original mid-2005 GY tires... While on the highway the RRI tire blown, on the side, a 2 inches hole . No damage on the motorhome at least!

An emergency roadside assistance gave (sold) me his spare which was a 245/70R19.5 like my tire, an Hankook AK11 or AH11, so I could get to my campground one hour away for the week-end.

I then stopped in a truck service to install new tires, they sold me Michelin XZE 245/70R19.5 for $418 each, $30 mounting/balancing, no taxes because I was in NH. I had no time really to shop around and no appointment.

Was it a good deal

Two years ago in NH, I bought a pair of Brigestones same size and paid $456 each mounted and balanced. Pretty close to what you paid. I think we both got a fair price. Love that sales tax free New Hampshire!!

I don't think we can tell yet.

Seems to be an ok deal unless they have been on a shelf somewhere a while.

Given I can get 6 22.5's fresh toyos for about 2800, I don't know how good a deal 6 19.5's for 2628 is

When were they actually manufactured? If you bought tires manufactured earlier than 2013 Id say no.

The DOT says 4613 so about November 2013, I would have preferred 2014 but I'm ok with it I guess.

Thats fine as the warranty usually starts with the in service date , but you want reasonably fresh rubber.

I don't think you got raped, or the best deal, but if you got serviced properly and quickly then Id call it square.
